    lazyme's Note:

    I found this in an old issue of Food and Wine. It sounds quick and good. Here's how the magazine describes it. A quick take on spinach and ricotta cannelloni, this baked pasta is fast because there's nothing to stuff. The filling is simply tossed with cooked rigatoni that's then topped with fontina and baked to a golden brown.

      Followed the ingredients & directions right on down, but didn't squeeze out all the moisture from the spinach (The tip from another reviewer that the resulting puree was a bit too thick led me in that direction!), & the resulting puree came out just fine! Really enjoyed the blend of cheeses in this dish! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed while touring Italy on Zaar's World Tour 4]

      Followed directions and ingredient list exactly. This is incredibly bland and dry, not nearly worthy the effort. My entire family agreed. The comments already posted about adding tomato sauce or extra milk also would help if you are going to try it as that could at least help with the dryness.

      The flavors of this were superb!!! It was easy and quick to make, and the cheeses worked so well in it. One thing i will do next time, is before i put the last cheeses on, i will swirl some tomatoe sauce in it just to give it a litle moisture and since bechamel works well with canneloni, when a small amount of tomato sauce is added i think it will be a nice addition.. made for zwt4
