Once you try these mini-sized calzones, you may never go back to the large ones.  Not only do these pretty bites take advantage of convenient refrigerator crescent rolls, but they can be made ahead and popped in the oven right before company arrives.  No one can eat just one and people love the cheesy, fresh taste!

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
