– 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped – salt and pepper to taste

– 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder – a dash of nutmeg (optional)

How to make spinach & ricotta filling?

First, heat up a pan with some olive oil and sauté the onions until they’re translucent. Add the garlic, spinach, and basil leaves. Sauté for about 5 minutes until all of the spinach is wilted. Add salt and pepper to taste. Next, add ricotta cheese and stir everything together until it’s heated through. Finally, remove from heat and set aside to cool down a bit before assembling your cannelloni tubes (see recipe below).

How long does it take to cook spinach cannelloni?

The cannelloni tubes cook for about 20 minutes in boiling water. You’ll need to start with a saucepan of salted water on the stove and bring it to a boil. Place the tube into the boiling water carefully, swirling it around so that it can get heated evenly. Once you see some bubbles on the surface of the pasta, turn down the heat and cover it with a lid. Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until al dente. When they’re done cooking, remove them from the pot and place them onto paper towels to drain any excess water.

Tips for perfect cannelloni

– Do not over-stuff your cannelloni tube, you want the filling to be inside but not spilling out.

– Start by frying the spinach in a pan with olive oil until it turns a dark green color, then add ricotta, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Mix everything together and set it aside.

– Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and bring a pot of water to boil on high heat. Add salt to the boiling water and place your cannelloni tubes inside for 6-8 minutes or until they are cooked through.

– Remove from pot with tongs and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or foil.
