Ingredients

  • onion 1 large, halved and sliced butter
  • garlic 1 clove, crushed
  • spinach 1 bag, washed
  • ricotta 1 × 250g tub
  • lemon 1, zested
  • parmesan 50g, grated
  • ready-made pancakes 8 (look for ones without added sugar)
  • tomato pasta sauce 350g jar, good quality

Method

  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Cook the onions in a knob of butter in a large pan, until soft, caramelised and dark golden. Add the garlic and spinach and cook until the spinach is completely wilted. Cool.

  • Step 2

    Mix in the ricotta, lemon zest and half the parmesan and season. Divide between 8 pancakes and roll each one up to make an evenly filled tube.

  • Step 3

    Spread ⅓ of the sauce on the bottom of a baking dish. Sit the pancakes side by side in the dish (like cannelloni). Pour the rest of the sauce over. Sprinkle over the rest of the parmesan. Bake for 25-30 minutes until bubbling and the cheese is golden.
