Cannelloni-inspired Chicken Rolls- Video Archive

The combination of spinach, cheese and garlic has been a life-long favourite of mine. I’m much more a savoury person than into sweet stuff. Anything with grilled cheese is a bit of a weakness really. Lasagne and cannelloni are by far my favourites.

A few years ago I came up with this recipe for chicken prepared using my ricotta and spinach filling and I was reminded of it today when I had lunch with Janelle at Fasta Pasta. I think, in this video, I say to use quark, but you could just as easily use a creamed cottage cheese or a low fat ricotta. They’re all a good source of lean protein.

This is one of the first videos filmed for a series called Healthy Helpings TV, which I produced in 2007-2008. I will be featuring a few more of these on this website over the upcoming weeks.
