Description

This dish is just what you want to eat when the weather is dreary and cold. Sheets of pasta are stuffed with a delicate cheese mixture and cooked in a covering of tomato sauce for a truly comforting meal. This recipe gets some unexpected boosts of flavor from a bit of lemon zest in the cheese filling and star anise in the tomato sauce. Ready in under 40 minutes, this recipe is great for preparing for weeknight dinner.
