Cannelloni

The home economics teacher at our school made this recipe and shared it with the school employees. It has become a traditional for me to make it for Christmas dinner each year.

I like to make this early in the day and then just put it in the oven just before we are ready to sit down to eat. Homemade bread and a nice salad goes well with this meal.

Prep:

30 Min

Cook:

40 Min

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb
chop meat
2 box
spinach, thawed and squeezed
1
small onion, chopped
2
slices white bread, crumbed
1 large
garlic minced
1 tsp
pepper
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
oregano
2 Tbsp
parsley
2
eggs, slightly beaten
5 Tbsp
parmesan cheese
1 c
grated mozzarella
2 Tbsp
cream
1 lb
large pasta shells or manicotti shells

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brown meat and onion in lightly oil pan

with onion until browned; add spinach and cook for

approximately 10 minutes. Add remaining

ingredients in bowl and add meat mixture. Fill

large pasta shells or lasagna noodles.
2
Put light layer of tomato sauce on bottom

of 9 x 13 pan. Add stuffed pasta in single layer

and add sauce below:

1/4 stick margarine (or butter)
3 Tbsp. flour
3/4 cup cream (I use milk)
1 cup milk
dash of white pepper
Salt to taste

Melt margarine in pan and add flour to a

roux. Mix in the milk (and/or cream) and add

remaining ingredients. Pour over the top (this

makes the casserole taste richer and I have left it

off, but it makes a difference) of the stuffed

pasta and add another layer of tomato sauce. Bake

in oven for approximately 1/2 hour and let sit for

10 minutes.
