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


  • 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.
