I thought I would leave this recipe with you to give you something to try over the weekend. If you haven’t had a go at last week’s pasta dough yet, but this one on your menu. This is one of those dishes that take a little bit of time to put together, but once in the oven, you’re done.
The pasta bakes up beautifully and the leftovers reheat well without falling to pieces. You could throw a salad together to have on the side but I am quite happy with just a plate of the cannelloni on its own.
You will only need half of the pasta dough – recipe here. You can store the other half in the fridge for a few days or roll it out and freeze layered between cling wrap.
Chicken cannelloni with pumpkin, spinach and ricotta
This recipe is based on one I saw on a TV lifestyle program years ago, “Our House” I think. I have had a print out tucked amongst my recipe collection but it doesn’t have the details of where it came from. I find 3 cannelloni per serve is quite filling and the little people are usually satisfied with just 2.
