slimming canneloni

Healthier version of a yummy meal- 1 syn!

ingredients

  • 8 cannelloni tubes
  • A few basil leaves, torn
  • 2 level tbsps grated vegetarian Parmesan style cheese

for the Filling:

  • 225g fresh spinach, washed and trimmed
  • 225g fat-free natural cottage cheese
  • Freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Salt and ground black pepper

for the Sauce:

  • 425ml passata
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Salt and ground black pepper

method

  1. To make the filling put the spinach in a saucepan with 2 tablespoons of water. Cover with a lid and cook very gently over a low heat for about 5 minutes, until the leaves are limp and bright green. Drain in a colander, pressing down on top of the spinach with a saucer to squeeze out all the liquid.
  2. Chop the spinach and mix with the cottage cheese, nutmeg, egg yolk and seasoning. Spoon the filling into the cannelloni tubes and arrange them in an ovenproof dish.
  3. Mix the passata, sugar, garlic and seasoning together and pour over the cannelloni. Sprinkle with basil and Parmesan cheese and bake in a preheated oven at 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas Mark 6 for about 20 minutes, until bubbling and golden brown.
