Using leftover beef means this quick cannelloni can be on the table in just 30 minutes, perfect for a weeknight Italian-style meal. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our pot-roasted beef in red wine with baby veg and new potatoes dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be re-heated more than once.
Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220ºC, fan 200ºC.
Squeeze out as much excess water from the spinach as possible, put it in to a medium bowl with 175g (6oz) of the ricotta, the beef, nutmeg and seasoning, stir well to combine everything together.
If using large lasagne sheets, cut them in half.
Place one-sixth of the beef mixture at the short end of each lasagne sheet and using the back of a spoon, spread it out to cover one quarter of the sheet. Roll the pasta up to encase the filling and place in a shallow ovenproof dish. Pour the passata over and dot the reserved ricotta on top. Scatter with the Parmesan, then bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden and bubbling.
