    ValkyrieQueen's Note:

    After eating Canneloni Genovese too many times at a local restaurant, a friend and I set out to recreate the Rosatella Sauce at home. Here is the basic sauce. that seems about as close as we can get. It's the best of a simple marinara sauce combined with alfredo sauce.

      Hubby and I loved this vegetarian meal! What a great way to get carrots, and didn't mind the celery either. I used 1 teaspoon dried oregano and 1/2 cup grated parmesan-the directions don't match the ingredient list. I did have a problem here though -I did not have 62 ounces of crushed tomatoes in house (we live 16 miles from store) so used what I had on hand. 32 ounces of crushed tomatoes, some fresh tomatoes, and a 10 ounce can of Rotel tomatoes which had green chiles in them. Sigh such is life. I did try to spoon out most of the chiles but some still ended up in there-guessing about a teaspoon. Thank you VQ for sharing a keeper. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
