Leftover chicken cannelloni video
Reinvent leftover roast chicken in this indulgent pasta bake recipe. It takes just 20 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes in the oven. We’d say it’s worth roasting a chicken just so you have leftovers for this cracker of a recipe.
This video was made for us by our friends at Fisher & Paykel, using their home appliances.
How to make:
- Heat a glug of vegetable oil in a pan, then gently fry the onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes. Put in a mixing bowl. Add the ricotta, egg yolks and fresh sage leaves. Mix, season and stir in the chicken. Put the mixture in a blender and whizz to a pâté texture.
- You’ll need an ovenproof dish that can snugly fit in the pasta tubes. Spoon the smooth filling into the centre of the pasta tubes, then arrange them in the dish.
- Put the pasta sauce in a large pan, add the spinach and mascarpone. Gently heat until the spinach wilts and the mascarpone melts into the sauce, then mix well. Pour over the pasta tubes, top with the parmesan and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden and crisp on top and the pasta is cooked but still has a little bite.
