Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni

Submitted by: MAGPIE17


Number of Servings: 15

Ingredients

    Whole wheat pasta - 1 package fresh lasagna sheets
    Light ricotta - ~1.5 cups
    parmesan -0.5 cup
    egg yolks - 2
    spinach -2-3 cups fresh
    garlic powder -to taste
    black pepper -to taste
    prego sauce - ~3 cups

Directions

Place spinach in a pot of water and bring to a boil. Let boil for 1-2 minutes, then strain, rinse with cold water, squeeze and chop finely.
Preheat oven to 350F.
I use fresh whole wheat pasta sheets, so at this point I break them in half and soak them in cold water for 2 minutes.

Mix together spinach, ricotta, 1/4 cup parmesan, egg yolks and spices (to taste). Drain pasta sheets. Spoon ricotta mixture (about 2 tablespoons) onto each sheet and roll it. Place each cannelloni in a pan (I use a pyrex lasagna dish). When all cannelloni are assembled, cover with pasta sauce, sprinkle on rest of the parmesan, and add a little garlic powder.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Makes 12-15 cannelloni (enough for ~4 meals).
