WWDH - Spinach and ricotta cannelloni


This week's Wednesday with Donna Hay recipe was chosen by Kayte.  It is Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni from Modern Classics Book I, and can also be found online.

I have never made cannelloni before, so I found this to be an interesting recipe.  It ended up being fairly easy to make, as Donna stipulates the use of fresh lasagne sheets into which the spinach and cheese filling is rolled up before being topped with bottled tomato pasta sauce.

Here is a peek at the insides:


This cannelloni is very tasty but quite rich - I couldn't eat the entire serving of two pieces, so divided the cannelloni up into one and half piece lots.  I served my cannelloni with frozen veges dolloped with aubergine and chilli jam.

I would make this again - it was delicious.

This is the easiest cannelloni I have ever made. And delicious, too. Yes, it was rich, but....

Looks great.

This really is a classic dish, and yours looks great. I love the idea of topping it with chilli jam too!

Your photo of it all is fabulous! Love that picture. Also love that you served it with all those veggies! I just put mine on a bed of shredded spinach...I'm going your route next time as that looks delicious!

This makes a nice dinner. I did make a similar recipe, a long time ago and I am glad I could make this one, this time.

I love cannelloni. It's like Italian enchiladas!

certainly looks delicious - and canneloni with fresh pasta is so much easier than poking filling in a dried tube

Mmmm...that looks yummy. I have that book, so will have to try this recipe because I know my family would enjoy it. It's so nice when you can save some for later or even freeze for another time.
