If you are coming round to our flat and I’m making you something fancy this is what you are going to get: spinach and ricotta cannelloni. I’m not sure that it’s actually fancy. I don’t have much of a sense of what is fancy. It does have a lot of different steps and a lot of it I make by hand.
This isn’t Tesco ready meal cannelloni. For one thing it’s vegan. I make the ricotta myself, from nuts. I roll out the pasta in Kate’s parents old pasta machine, cook the sheets and stuff them with ricotta mix. Then homemade tomato sauce to top it all off. I feel fancy by the time it comes out of the oven. If a little hot, sweaty and covered in flour.

I’m sure I’ve already left this comment on someone else’s post this month, but it bears repeating: I think cannelloni is pretty much the fanciest meal in the world. When you factor in the homemade pasta and cheese, well, I’d feel like royalty if someone went to all that trouble for me!
It’s definitely my favourite! And unlike ravioli you can’t serve a pathetically tiny portion. A plus in my book.
