Spinach and Chicken Cannelloni

This is another recipe that Miss V picked out of her YCA (Young Chefs Academy Binder).  This recipe does call for you to make Tomato Basil Sauce, Creamy Alfredo Sauce and Fresh Pasta.  Well I subbed jarred sauces and dried lasagna noodles.  It says 6 but the filling makes alot, so you could probably make a couple more noodles.br /br /1 (10oz) pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed drybr /1 1/2 pounds part skim ricotta cheesebr /1 pre cooked chicken breast, shreddedbr /1 cup Romano Cheese, shreddedbr /1 cup mozzarella cheese, shreddedbr /1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (divided)br /3 eggsbr /1/2 tsp saltbr /1/4 tsp pepperbr /1 tbs Italian parsley choppedbr /1 tsp fresh basil choppedbr /1 1/2 cups Tomato Basil Saucebr /1 cup creamy Alfredo Saucebr /1 recipe fresh pasta shaped into lasagna noodles, cooked and cut in half (or  6 dried noodles)br /br /Preheat oven to 400 degrees.br /br /In a large bowl, thoroughly combine spinach, ricotta, chicken, Romano Cheese, Mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, eggs, salt, pepper, parsley and basil.br /br /Pour 1 1/2 cups Tomato Basil Sauce evenly in a 13x9 baking dish.  Evenly spoon about 1/3 cup chicken spinach mixture filling in the center of each lasagna noodle half.  Fold ends over the filling overlapping the ends a small amount to form a filled tube.  Place seam side down in prepared baking dish.  Repeat making 12.br /br /Top each with a dollop of Alfredo sauce.  Evenly sprinkle with remaining Parmesan.  Bake covered with foil for 20 minutes.  Uncover and bake 10 more minutes until bubbly.  Makes 6 servings.br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-N3geHf0nt4/US9lrGyhydI/AAAAAAAAEo8/3ZPTE0iMmoo/s1600/spinachchickencanaloni-02-27-2013.JPG" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="300" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-N3geHf0nt4/US9lrGyhydI/AAAAAAAAEo8/3ZPTE0iMmoo/s400/spinachchickencanaloni-02-27-2013.JPG" width="400" //a/divbr /div class="blogger-post-footer"I enjoy reading any and all comments!
