-          Olive oil, Basil, Salt & Black pepper

Mix the spinach, ricotta cheese, grated cheese (leave some to put on top), salt and pepper in a large bowl. Fill the cannelloni tubes with the mixture.

For the sauce, heat olive oil in a frying pan, add the tomato puree, basil, salt and black pepper, and bring to the boil. Just remove it from the heat now.

Grease an oven baking dish and put a layer of the red sauce as a base for the cannelloni, but leave enough to cover it also. Place a single layer of cannelloni side by side and pour the remaining sauce on top. Sprinkle the remaining grated cheese on top, cover with foil and bake in oven at 200°C for 25-35 minutes, removing the foil for the last 5 minutes.

Lunch is done. Carefully arrange the table and serve it with love!

Bon appetite!
