Chicken Cannelloni

Ingredients

Cannelloni Filling:

8 oz. chicken breasts (about 2), cooked thoroughly

1 oz. fresh, chopped spinach

1 oz. sun-dried tomatoes, sliced

16 oz. ricotta cheese

3 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded

½ tsp black pepper

1 tsp salt

12 lasagna noodles

Cannelloni Sauce:

16 oz. Asiago cream sauce

16 oz. tomato sauce, jar

3 oz. Parmesan Cheese, grated

Directions

First, allow chicken breasts to cool once they are cooked thoroughly.

Secondly, dice the cooked chicken breast into ½ inch pieces and place into a large mixing bowl. Add spinach, tomatoes, ricotta, mozzarella, pepper, salt, and mix thoroughly.

Begin arranging the pre-cooked pasta sheets on a cutting board by placing two or three rounded tablespoons of filling mixture down the center of each pasta sheet and carefully roll pasta around filling in a cigar fashion. Place the rolled cannelloni, side by side, into a shallow baking dish. Next, place Asiago sauce and tomato sauce in a bowl and mix until well incorporated. Pour sauce over cannelloni covering completely. Finally, sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over top of sauce.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.

Remove foil and continue to bake for an additional 20 minutes. Lastly, remove from oven and serve immediately.
