Brace yourself, I have come up with the BEST recipe that I’ve ever created to date. Chicken And Spinach Cannelloni Rolls. Seriously.

I could have taken my tried, tested and true Lasagna recipe and made a delicious meal for my family using the lasagna sheets. Yet, I while I’m trying new things, why not keep try a whole new recipe?

The following is a blend of my cannelloni recipe and a couple ingredients which I thought would make this new one stand out – with the delicious RosΓ© Sauce.

For the moment, pretend I’m shaking you by the shoulders while screaming…

this Chicken And Spinach Cannelloni Rolls recipe is to DIE FOR!!

I don’t post recipes on here that I don’t think people will enjoy. I would recommend all the tasties found in the Recipe Box at My Organized Chaos, because I like them a ton.

How do you make cannelloni?

Whipping up the mixture for the filling is super easy. Rolling them in lasagna sheets is just as simple. Then you have the two-blend sauce which is a no-briner.

This recipe is easy to make and so very delicious you just might want it again the next day. We have!

Not only have I told people to make it, but I have happily offered to make it for them just to ensure they they got a taste.

Do you sense my excitement about these roll-ups? {insert jazz hands}.

What can I say? I’m as helpful as I am a recruiter. Let me tell you, they were hooked at first taste.

My family has claimed this Chicken And Spinach Cannelloni Rolls recipe is “better than I’ve ever gotten in an Italian restaurant”. Blush, ya I know.

The kids? I didn’t even notice them eating it so fast, until their plates were licked clean {really!}. We had enough for leftovers for the next night, and discovered they are even better warmed up.

Then the day after that, I was tempted to make it again.

That’s when I learned my lesson to make double batches and freeze a second portion for next time. Yep, this freezes up very nice for later.
