My final project is submitted and the online discussions are closed. Now I can finally spend time making things from scratch again! Hubster’s belly will be so happy!
1 batch of cannelloni, 1 lb. ground (turkey) sausage, 2 c. ricotta cheese, 1 c. chopped white onion, olive oil, 1 c. parmesan cheese, 1 egg, 1 Tbsp. crushed garlic, 2 c. fresh baby spinach, 1 red pepper, fresh cracked black pepper, fresh ground sea salt, tomato sauce (or crushed tomatoes or diced tomatoes)
Parboil fresh cannelloni and then rub with olive oil. Oil a glass casserole dish. Preheat oven 350°F. Brown onion, garlic and sausage in frying pan. Once meat is cooked, set aside to cool. Cut peppers into long strips. Add peppers and spinach to pan until softened, set aside. Mix together ricotta, eggs, parmesan, salt, pepper and sausage mixture. In cannelloni, layer pepper strips and spinach. Spoon on ricotta mixture and gently roll cannelloni to create a tube. Place stuffed cannelloni in baking dish seam side down. Pour sauce or tomatoes over pasta and bake for 30 minutes.

Serve hot and enjoy!
