Beef Cannelloni

Been meaning to cook this for a while, and it has actually taken me a while to post this too! haha … This is such a comfort / weekend meal. Doesn’t take a lot of time to put together, so you can actually wander off to do other things while it bakes.

Mince beef: 400g
Onion: 1 finely chopped
Garlic Cloves: 3 minced
Spinach: 350g Roughly chopped
Pesto: 4 tbsp
Tomato: 1 can
Lasagne sheets: 6
Grated cheese: 1/2 cup
Salt and Pepper

Saute the onion and minced garlic in some oil. When the onion has softened, add the minced beef, salt and pepper. Mix and let it cook for a few minutes.

After about 5mins, add 1/3rd of the can of tomatoes, and the 4 tbsp of pesto and cook on medium heat.

Cook the Lasagne sheets and get ready to make cannellonis!

Preheat the oven to 180C. Spray the dish you are using with some oil if needed.

Once the meat has cooked, spoon the meat mixture along one end of the lasagne sheet and roll. Place seam side down and continue assembly and place in a single layer. Pour over the remaining tomatoes and sprinkle the grated cheese.

Bake for 40 minutes until the top is golden.


PS: If you are not into beef, you can substitute with chicken or lamb mince or use a vegan option for meat.
