Foolproof spinach and ricotta cannelloni

    1 hour

    The secret to non-cracking cannelloni is to use fresh lasagne sheets. Lasagne sheets are rolled around a bacon, ricotta and spinach filling, topped with chopped tomatoes and grated cheese, then baked to perfection. Serve with garlic bread or a side salad, if desired.

    Just made this and it was delicious, added a bit of chilli and nutmeg. Had some home made tomato sauce which I used and added mozzarella cheese on top and garnished with fresh basil. Thought it was the best recipe for this meal, thank you  -  01 Jun 2014
