East Meets West Canneloni

Ed Mayfield


This was in the local paper recently and just had to try it, much to enjoyment...real easy and real tasty. East meets West by rolling Italian-style filling of spinach, cheese, mushrooms and red peppers in Asian-style egg-roll wrappers.

1 c
jarred marinara sauce, divided
1 1/2 c
ricotta cheese
4 oz
goat cheese
2 Tbsp
chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp

1 Tbsp
salt and pepper to taste
6-inch egg roll wrappers
1 1/2 c

12 oz jar roasted red peppers, cut into 1/2 in strips
10 small

1/2 c

1Heat the oven to 375 degrees.

2Spread 1/2 cup marinara sauce over the bottom of a 9X13 in baking dish.

3In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta, goat cheese, parsley, basil and cornstarch. Mix with fork until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.

4Lay an egg roll wrapper on a dry, flat surface. In a strip along one edge, spoon 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture. Top with a bit of the spinach, roasted peppers, and mushrooms. Roll the wrapper into a tube around the fillings, moistening the edge with water and pressing firmly to seal. Transfer to the baking dish. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
