Ingredients

Frozen boiled spinach, drained

500 g, thawed

Reduced-fat ricotta cheese

300 g

Pasta

250 g, cannelloni

Tomato passata

700 g

Extra light cheddar cheese

½ cup(s), grated, (60g)

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly spray a 2-litre capacity, ovenproof dish with oil.
  2. Squeeze spinach with hands to remove excess water. Place in a bowl with ricotta and season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  3. Spoon ricotta mixture into each cannelloni tube. Spread half the passata over base of prepared dish. Arrange cannelloni, side-by-side, over passata. Pour remaining passata over pasta. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 30 minutes or until pasta is tender and filling is heated through. Cover with foil and set aside for 10 minutes to stand before serving.
