cannelloni in February

Sunday, February 7 – Fresh pasta: Cannelloni Spinach & Ricotta

On the menu today are fresh spinach and cheese filled cannelloni. Food historians argue that the first cannelloni pasta dates back to the early 19th century, when a Neapolitan cook made pasta filled with ground meat and cooked it in tomato sauce. Others maintain that the first cannelloni appeared in Amalfi. Regardless of its origin, it is an Italian favorite, luxurious and reserved for special occasions. In our cooking lesson today, we’ll prepare fresh cannelloni from scratch.
Start time: 12:00 pm EST
Duration: 90 – 120 minutes
