Cannelloni with beef, ricotta and spinach – Recipe

Standard

Last week we had dinner with our neighbours, whom we get along with quite well!
For this occasion I decided to make an italian dish; Canneloni!

The ingredients I used:
20 canneloni
400 gr minced beef
500 gr spinach
250 gr ricotta
Herbs (paprika, salt, pepper, oregano)
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
Two cans of tomatoes
2 onions
Grated cheese

First make the tomato sauce by baking the onions, 1 clove of garlic and after that adding the tomatoes. Put the mixutre in a blender to make it a smooth sauce.

Than bake the minced meat with the other clove of garlic; mix this with this (defrosted) spinach and the ricotta. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Fill the canneloni with the spinach/meet/ricotta mixture. I used a piping bag which worked very well!

Put the filled canneloni in a big dish and cover all the canneloni with the tomato sauce. Finally, sprinkle a layer of grated cheese on top and bake in a preheated oven on 200 degrees celcius.

The result was appreciated!
