Method

  1. 1. Combine spring onions, ricotta and blanched rocket leaves. Season to taste.
  2. 2. Cut each lasagne sheet into three. Cook sheets in a large pot of boiling water for 3 minutes or until tender, then refresh in cold water. Divide ricotta mixture evenly along the longest length of each sheet. Roll up to form a tube and cut in half. Place in a greased 30 x 18 cm baking dish.
  3. 3. Pour tomato pasta sauce over cannelloni tubes and bake at 180°C for 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve cannelloni onto large plates, top with rocket and shaved parmesan.

Tips / Handy Hints

Handy Hints: Use the ricotta that can be purchased in the wedge from supermarkets and delis for a good chunky cannelloni. Smooth ricotta can be used although the texture will be different.
