  • 400g (14.1oz) ricotta cheese
  • 100g (3.5oz) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  2. In a large bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried basil, and the egg. Mix well.
  3. Add the chopped spinach to the cheese mixture and mix until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Using a spoon, carefully stuff each cannelloni tube with the spinach and ricotta filling. Place the filled cannelloni tubes in a greased baking dish.
  5. Pour the marinara sauce over the cannelloni, making sure they are fully covered.
  6. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes.
  7. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cannelloni is golden and the sauce is bubbling.
  8. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.

  • Feel free to add some grated mozzarella cheese on top of the cannelloni before baking for an extra cheesy touch.
  • This dish pairs well with a fresh green salad and a glass of red wine.
