Yesterday I felt like cooking something new. Bad weather and lazy mood, all I wanted to do was stay indoors, eat something good and watch a movie. I craved pasta so I bought cannelloni and decided to stuff them with cheese and spinach. Oh my, what a great combination! I never cooked cannelloni before. Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough stuffing and they were not as stuffed as they should have been but they were great anyway. Tip! Stuff them until they’re completely full.  I’ll try this spinach and feta cannelloni recipe with tofu also. I think it will be just as delicious. So, if you’re vegan, just replace feta with tofu :)

This will be my last pasta meal for the next 1-2 months as I’ll start my pilates/aerobic classes tomorrow. I want to get a fit body. Eating healthy is not enough. I am not an athletic person at all! This will be hard for me but I think it’s time to do something about it. I want to be slim and fit not just slim.

This spinach and feta cannelloni was a recipe to remember! I’m sure you’ll love it too. I’d like to cook cannelloni again, what other stuffings you think would go with it?

Ieri am simtit ca trebuie sa incerc ceva nou in materie de retete. Aveam o stare de lene incurabila si tot ce imi doream era sa stau in casa, sa ma uit la un film bun si sa mananc ceva care sa imi gadile papilele gustative. Aveam pofta de paste. Asa ca  mi-a venit ideea sa fac cannelloni cu spanac si branza feta.Feta este si va fi slabiciunea mea. Stiu ca nu e sanatoasa insa din cand in cand o mai adaug in retetele mele de paste. Si in acest caz, ce bine am facut! Au iesit super acesti cannelloni cu spanac si branza feta :D

Sfat: Sa ii umpleti pana cand sunt complet plini. Eu nu i-am indesat prea bine si s-au cam ‘dezumflat’ insa tot gustosi au fost :) 

Pentru mine a fost prima oara cand am gatit cannelloni. Voi ati mai preparat asa ceva? Ce umpluturi ati folosit? 

Cannelloni cu spanac si branza feta

 Cannelloni cu spanac si branza feta


  • 200g branza feta (sau tofu pt vegani)
  • un borcan cu spanac (nu era anotimpul spanacului cand am preparat mancarea asta, ideal este sa folositi spanac proaspat)
  • 1 pachet de paste cannelloni (aprox. 18-20 per pachet)
  • 5 Lg pasta de tomate groasa
  • 1 cana rosii cubulete din conserva (Eu am folosit rosii puse la borcan de mama insa puteti folosi si rosii la conserva de la magazin)
  • 1 lg busuioc uscat
  • 1 lg oregano uscat
  • ulei de masline
  • sare si piper dupa gust


  1. Intr-un bol mai maricel, amesteca feta cu spanacul. Paseaza-le cu o furculita.
  2. Indeasa bine umplutura in pastele cannelloni.
  3. Unge o tava cu putin ulei de masline si aseaza pastele umplute.
  4. Intr-un alt bol, amesteca rosiile cubulete, pasta de tomate si condimentele. Toarna-le apoi peste pastele din tava.
  5. Adauga si putina apa in tava, nu foarte multa, aprox. 1/4 cana.
  6. Acopera tava cu folie de aluminiu si lasa-le la cuptor jumatate de ora la 180C.

  1. This looks delicious!

    I work for a goat cheese company based in central Minnesota – I was wondering if we could use your recipe/photos for our website? We’re in the process of updating it and I would love to have some fresh new ideas for our goat’s milk feta.
