Pork, Spinach & Ricotta Cannelloni

This is a classic cannelloni pasta meal.  It only uses a few ingredients and it is a very simple recipe.

The cannelloni tubes are made with fresh lasagne sheets.  The pork, spinach and ricotta filling are a great combination and wonderful filling for the cannelloni.  Topped with a pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese and you have a very tasty & hearty meal.

You can use store bought cannelloni pasta shells and fill those with the pork mince filling.  This can be fiddly and to be honest I’m not sure it is really any easier than using lasagne sheets which are easier to fill and simply roll up.  I think fresh lasagne sheets taste best, but either way this is a very nice pasta dish.

Recipe Notes

You can use other forms of mince as well, to your preference.  Our local supermarket sells a combination of pork and veal mince which I will often use.
