Food52, I was intrigued. Cascioni Romganoli is essentially a savory turnover, and turnovers are great for lunch meals or snacking with one hand since the messy filling is neatly contained in a sealed pocket of dough. The author says that her mother would use leftover piadina (a flat bread from Romagna), and stuff them whatever ingredients were on hand to make stuffed dough pockets that are cooked on the griddle.
I wasn't sure whether or not to use the stems of the chard. Since the recipe didn't specify, I went ahead and added the chopped stems to the pot. They tasted fine and all and cooked thoroughly, but the pieces poked through the thinly rolled out dough (should have seen that coming). Next time, I'll keep them out.
The remaining turnovers were individually wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen for another day.

Since many of us are more body-conscious during these warmer months, Luna reminds us that we don't have to compromise taste for health. The nutritional stats (180 calories; 8 grams protein; 3 grams fiber; contains CORE 4™ vitamins and minerals: calcium, folic acid, iron, and vitamin d) make it the perfect snack to help satisfy cravings while still indulging in a delicious treat.
Taste-wise, I think I tasted more of the cinnamony spice than any actual carrot flavoring, even though the bar does contain organic dried carrots. It's tasty and reminiscent of a healthy crispy rice bar, but with icing. I don't eat bars very often, though I have a selection of favorites I reach for when I'm on road trips or need a quick snack to tide me over. Luna Bar offers so many varieties of bars (a few that I've previously reviewed) and is a brand I often purchase on my own.
If you'd like to try this tasty carrot cake bar for yourself, it is available at Target and natural food stores and sells for $1.39.
