Cannelloni:
12 fresh lasagna sheets (about 3" by 8") 
10 ounces frozen spinach, squeeze all the liquid out 
14 ounces cooked artichoke hearts, chopped 
1 small white onion, chopped 
1 teaspoon nutmeg 
1/2 cup ricotta cheese 
1/2 cup cream cheese, room temperature 
1/2 cup freshly grated parmigiano reggiano cheese 
Handful fresh parsley, chopped 
Sea salt and black pepper to taste 
1 cup fresh parmesan cheese, grated (garnish)

Combine artichoke, spinach, parmigiano reggiano cheese, ricotta cheese, cream cheese, parsley, and nutmeg. Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste.

Sauce:
3 large roasted red pepper
3 garlic, cloves 
1 small white onion, chopped into large chunks 
1/4 cup olive oil 
Sea salt and black pepper


Blend until smooth. Season with salt and black pepper.

Spread 1/3 cup of spinach artichoke mixture along center of each piece. Roll up to enclose filling. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Where can I find lasagna sheets? My husband bought regular lasagna noodles. They wouldn't work would they? And do you cook the lasagna before stuffing them?

Mia said...

Amy - I boil them for a few minutes to soften first. You can use what you have, I'm sure it will be fine. :)

Can you tell me ...
Where can I buy the lasagna sheets???

Mia said...

Hi Maria - If you can not get them fresh from your deli section at the supermarket. You can buy them in a box in the pasta aisle and cook them slightly first to soften so you can roll it (about 4 to 5 minutes).
