Filled with classic skinny: ricotta and spinach

The filling of lean with ricotta and spinach

This is my favorite skinny stuffing.
As a result, in my kitchen, it is by definition the stuffing, the classic one.

I often prepare it because, besides being of a disarming simplicity in its preparation and composition, it is also very appreciated by all my guests; even from children!
And then I really like it too ...

It is a filling that has many advantages: it is cheap and also suitable for vegetarian preparations of a certain type importance.
I use it for lasagna, ravioli, tortelloni and cannelloni.
And sometimes, since they are good, even for panzerottini baked to offer as finger food.

One warning: breadcrumbs.
It serves mainly to dry and compact the whole and therefore, according to the filling which will be destined for the filling, it will have to be added in variable quantities; or even omitted and replaced with more grain.

The quantities indicated are for stuffing about twenty cannelloni.
The proportions of the ingredients can be varied according to personal taste.
