Looking for a recipe for a type of calzone

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

Looking for a recipe for a type of calzone

Postby MarieVolbeda » 08 Apr 2011, 21:05

I am looking for the recipes for a type of calzone made by the people of Campania called "canashone" sp???. One was made with carmalized onions, black olives and anchovies, another was made with eggs, parmesan cheese and ham, a third was made with some kind of greens.

We ate these for Easter when we were kids. The recipes are long gone??

Thanks for any help.

Perhaps this link could help. It says it's called "Canascione":

That sounds a little like Italian Easter Cake to me.
My Italian surnames:

Caserta: Maietta, Rossano, Tessitore, Negro, Peluso, Musone

Campobasso: D'Andrea, Barile

Catanzaro: Fiorelli/Fiorillo, Romito
