    Hello - kinda pinched this and adapted from a recipe in the mag recently. Tin of spinach in water, well (and I mean well) drained, 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped red onion and half tub quark, salt pepper, mixed herbs all mashed up and poked into canelloni tubes. Carton passata with herbs and garlic - spread a bit on base of dish, lay filled tubes on top and cover in passata. And - only if you fancy it, it doesn't need it - a hex A's grated cheddar on the top. Whack in oven on 5 for bout half hour....lovely lovely! Served up with green beans like a good EE girl!

    yup - in the aisle where you find kidney beans and the like - it's a bit of a faff to drain it off properly but where it's all mashed up it goes into the wee tubes a treat - plus with fresh spinach you just get sooo much of it that i never get round to using it all!

    Sounds lovely...I suppose you could use frozen spinach instead?

    Thanks for sharing x

    I shop in Tesco - and yep - near the dried stuff - in a yellow box....bout 2 quid so not cheap - you can make your own by part cooking lasagne sheets and rolling them but i didn't have a lot of luck with that!

    I have this in the oven now but decided to add a little beef stock and mine to tomatoes, onion and herbs to make a kind of bolognese sauce to go over it and then covered with grated cheese! It's smelling lovely, can't wait for it to be ready :) Thanks for recipe!
