Cannelloni

Laura Sharrad

Ingredients:

Filling:

  • 1 bunch silverbeet, chopped finely
  • 500g ricotta
  • 1 egg
  • 50g grated parmigiano cheese
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/3 nutmeg grated

Sugo:

  • 2 x 400g tins chopped tomatoes
  • 1 brown onion, finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 long red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1/2 bunch basil leaves, picked

Bechamel:

  • Sea salt flakes
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Method:

Filling:

  1. In a frypan, fry off the silverbeet in a few tablespoons of olive oil until tender and cooked down.  Allow to cool & then add to a mixing bowl with the ricotta, parmiggiano, salt, egg, pepper and nutmeg and mix well to combine.
  2. Place the mixture into a piping bag or zip lock bag with a nozzle for the easiest way to fill the cannelloni, otherwise two small tea spoons will suffice.  Set aside.

Sugo:

  1. In a small pot, heat 3 tbs of extra virgin olive oil, adding in the onion, garlic, chilli and basil and begin to fry off until soft and translucent, then add in the tomatoes, and simmer away on a medium heat for about 20 minutes until thick and reduced & the oil is almost split out of the sauce.  Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Fill the cannelloni so they are filled to the brim.  Place half the sugo on the bottom of your baking tray, lay the cannelloni flat and cover with the remaining sugo.
  3. Pour the béchamel over the top and grate some extra parmigiano cheese onto.  Bake in a preheated oven for 30-35 minutes at 180c, covered with foil.
  4. Remove the foil for the last 5 minutes to get a bit of colour.  Allow the cannelloni to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
