Spinach and Herb Cannelloni is an Italian classic that never goes out of fashion. If you love pasta as much as we do then this is a perfect recipe for you.  Also, we have replaced the beef from a normal cannelloni with ricotta cheese, spinach and herbs. Serve this vegetarian dish with Garlic Bread and Grilled Vegetable Salad for an all round meal. This is easy to prep and make and always a success. Adding garlic, nutmeg and scallions gives this dish a lovely kick of a flavour. The oregano and basil gives the dish that finishing touch to the Spinach and Herb Cannelloni.
