The mixed pine nuts, spinach, and cream cheese bring a colorful element to the dish. While the pasta is being boiled there is a savory aroma that is added to the dish. The sauce is creamy and velvety when the flour and milk are added. This is a great dish to make for any dinner party.

Ingredients

12 cannelloni shells
300 grams spinach
pinenuts (toasted)
250 grams light cream cheese
60 grams butter
60 grams flour (sifted)
1 liter milk (heated)
salt
ground black pepper
nutmeg
cheese (choice, grated)

Directions

1Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2Boil the pasta according to package directions. Use plenty of water so the shells do not stick together.
3Separately, boil the spinach in plenty of salted water. Drain and set aside.
4Mix together a handful of pine nuts, the spinach, and the cream cheese. This will serve as the base of your filling.
5In a sauce pot, make a bechamel sauce. Start by melting the butter. Add the sifted flour. Little by little, add hot milk until a sauce-like consistency is reached. Salt and pepper to taste and add a dash of nutmeg.
6Stir the bechamel sauce and spinach mixture together.
7Fill the cannelloni with the cheesy spinach mixture.
8Lay the pasta in an oven-proof dish and pour the remaining bechamel sauce on top. Finish with grated cheese.
9Bake for 10 minutes, then broil for 3-4 more minutes until the cheese is golden and melted.
