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.

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

Step-By-Step

1Brown 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.
2Put 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.
