Spinach & Ricotta Cannelloni

canelloni

 

I have a weakness for Italian food. THESE CANNElLONi are homemade and relatively easy to do. I BUY THE PRE BAKED PASTA and add my FILLING and Homemade Sauce. I HOPE YOU guys like it, because MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS love them.

INGREDIENTS

1 package pre cooked cylindrical Canneloni

500 grams Ricotta cheese

1 kilo of fresh spinach

Garlic 

2 large white onions

Salt and pepper

Napolitana sauce (in another post I will put my homemade recipe)

PREPARATION

In a skillet with a little olive oil saute chopped onions sliced into small cubes and keep adding the chopped spinach. Salt & pepper and add minced garlic.

in a plastic container to mix the spinach filling with the ricotta cheese and check salt and pepper.

In a special oven squared glass container lightly oil the bottom with olive oil. The idea is to fill each cannelonni with a fork until it is full and  line them in rows.

After filling the container cover with Napolitana sauce (previously made) and grated Parmesan or pecorino cheese. Cover with foil and bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour.
