I love Manu, so I was super excited about this challenge. I also love pasta, so I knew I was going to have fun with this. I made the challenge fairly early in the month. And tackled it for an evening when I was having company for dinner. I was that confident in Manu's recipe and instructions. And she did not let me down!!
Cannelloni de margi, with red sauce instead of cream sauce:
Rolling the pasta:
Filling with cheese and spinach:
This was SO good. We all loved it. Five adults, three kids... Ok, one of the adults didn't actually try it. My dad doesn't eat pasta. No, I have no idea when not. But the rest of us were thrilled!
But I decided after this that I was not making pasta by hand again. It is a real work-out. This was the encouragement I needed to buy myself a present - I now have a hand-crank pasta roller...! Yay! So, of course, I had to make this again!! This time it was a mixed vegetable filling. But it was just as good.
Rolling the pasta - the fun way! (With the three-year-old doing the rolling, too)
Thank you, Manu! This is something I fully plan to make again. And again, and again! Such a wonderful, versatile recipe, I am so glad you encourages us to make this!!!
