A traditional pasta filling with feta and farmer cheese. Great the way it is or treat it as a good basic recipe to take off on, adding what appeals to you. Tell me what you try.

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan and saute the onion and garlic until golden; steam spinach until well wilted; remove from heat, cool enough to handle, and squeeze dry.
  2. Combine onion mixture and spinach; stir in cheeses and beat in seasonings, eggs and parsley; refrigerate until ready to stuff pasta.

I used all ricotta instead of feta/farmers cheese and it was great! Also added 2 oz. parmesan along with the parsley.

Great easy filling and its nice to see one using fresh produce. Makes quite a bit too. I've made enough for cannelloni for 4 and I could probably stuff enough for the freezer for a few 1-2 person meals.

Really teriffic filling! I used on Canneloni and the quantity was perfect for 12 shells. The only change I made was to use cottage cheese rather than feta.
