Stuffed Canneloni

Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni

Posted on 22 August 2014 by admin

The trickiest part to this recipe is stuffing the cannelloni, best way is to just get in there with your hands !!!

Ingredients

Cannelloni tubes
500g Spinach
200g Ricotta cheese
100g Parmesan
1 egg
1 jar passata
Bunch of Basil
Bunch of Oregano
3 cloves Garlic
Salt & Pepper

Method:

Make a ragu / sauce first, chop up the garlic and onion and fry in a little olive oil, pour over the passata and add the herbs (you could be lazy and just buy a pasta sauce)

Cannelloni filling:
Wilt the spinach, and mix together with the cheese and egg, now is the fun part – stuff the pasta tubes, I started with a bread knife and thought “Ah sod it get involved” and went in with the hands….

Pour a little of the ragu in an oven dish and place the stuffed cannelloni on top, then once all stuffed up and lined up neatly pour the rest of the sauce over the top – bake in the oven for 40 mins
