What's For Dinner Wednesday!

Welcome back to "What's For Dinner Wednesday!" This week is going to be quite simple. Tonight I am just going to make some Canneloni and a Salad. Mmmmmm.

Spinach And Ricotta Cannelloni
  • 1 3/4 cup Tomato Sauce
  • 600g Low Fat Ricotta Cheese
  • 250g frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained.
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped basil
  • 2 cups grated parmesan
  • salt and cracked black pepper
  • 6 fresh lasagne sheets
  • 3/4 cup Tomato Sauce extra
  • 1 cup grated low fat mozzarella 
What To Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C. Lightly grease a 20cm x 28cm x 4cm-high ovenproof dish. Pour in 1 cup Of Tomato Sauce, reserve the rest. Make sure to Spread it evenly over the base.
  2. Place ricotta, spinach, parsley, basil,  1/4 Cup of Parmesan, salt and pepper in a large bowl, and mix to combine.
  3. Cut each lasagne sheet into 14cm x 16cm pieces. Place 1/3 cup of ricotta mixture along length of each lasagne sheet and roll up to form a tube. The mixture should make 8 tubes. Lay tubes side by side in the dish. Spoon over extra tomato sauce to coat. Sprinkle with cheeses and bake for 25 minutes or until golden.

    *Note: I like to serve this with a very light salad. It's a tasty dish. Yummy!
