Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni with Simple Classic Tomato sauce

Submitted by: JENN_C22

Introduction

Sauce can be used on any pasta, but it is great with this lighter version of Spinach Ricotta Cannelloni. A quick and easy way to fill the tubes is by putting the filling in a ziplock bag with the corner cut (or a piping bag).
Serve with crusty bread and a salad.
