Who doesn’t love great Italian food? Well, I know that I do and am sure you will enjoy this recipe for cannelloni. You will amaze your friends when you make them this dish.
You will need:
one teaspoon of chopped parsley
three quarters cup of chopped onion
one half cup of shredded cheddar cheese or if you prefer to use monterey cheese then go right ahead, or mix the two cheeses
two tablespoons of oil
one quarter teaspoon of Italian herb seasoning
three quarter teaspoon of salt
one large beaten egg
two tablespoons of flour
half a cup of chicken broth or beef broth if you prefer
one and a half cups of ground cooked chicken or beef (meat of your choice)
one cup of ricotta cheese or you may use dry curd cottage cheese
eight egg roll wrappers
Italian sauce: wine, sugar, garlic salt, italian herb seasoning, and a can of tomatoe sauce
First you will make your Italian sauce. Simply stir one quarter cup of white wine, one teaspoon of sugar, a half teaspoon of garlic salt and a half teaspoon of Italian herb seasoning into a bowl with a fifteen ounce can of tomatoe sauce.
Gather your ingredients and organize them. Pour your oil into the frying pan and add the onion. Fry the onion until it is soft. Then add the herb seasoning stirring it in with the flour. Blend in the beef or chicken broth.
Cook the mixture stirring until it boils and gets very thick. Remove the mixture from the heat. Then stir in your chicken or beef meat, ricotta, egg and salt. Take half of your Italian sauce and pour half of it into a greased baking dish.
Set an egg roll wrapper on some waxed paper and spoon about one third cup filling into one end. Roll up the wrap using the end of waxed paper to lift the wrapper. Set it seam side down in the sauce. Repeat this process with all of the other wraps and filling.
Then pour the remaining sauce over the rolls you’ve made. Cover your dish tightly with foil. Put the dish into the oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Remove dish from oven and sprinkle the cheddar or monterey cheese on top. Place the dish back into the oven and bake for five more minutes. Remove the dish one last time and sprinkle with parsley. This will serve about four people.
