February is here and love is in the air. Looking for a romantic meals for two that won’t take you all day to make? Try my Shrimp Cannelloni that has a short cut so you can spend more time with your love and not in the kitchen.
The inspiration for these came after watching one of my favorite shows Diner, Drive-In’s & Dives. They were at a restaurant where they made cannelloni and instead of spending all the time stuffing the tubes they used egg roll wrappers instead. Genius! Right up there with the making ravioli using ice cube trays that I want to try soon. For the filling they used a food processor to make the filling. Also genius! So let’s get to it.
Start by thawing out the shrimp. I used cocktail already cooked shrimp to make quick work of this and then I have shrimp leftover for tacos and salads. In a food processor place the shrimp (keep out a small handful to add into the Alfredo sauce at the end), sundried tomatoes, garlic cloves and parsley. Process until all the has been combined. Take the mixture and place in a bowl then add the ricotta cheese and Italian cheese. Mix all together. The mixture should be well combined to make it easy to spread onto the egg roll wrappers.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Now start the Alfredo sauce. Start by melting the butter in a sauce pan once melted add the flour and make a roux. Now add the milk, the whole shrimp that was set aside and the Parmesan cheese. Stir to completely combine and it thickens up. In a 8×8 dish that has been greased put part 1/2 of the Alfredo into the bottom of the pan.
Now time to wrap the ‘Cannelloni’. Take the shrimp and ricotta mixture into 6 servings. Lay out each egg roll wrapper and spread the filling in the middle. Fold over the top edges over the filling then then one end over the filling and finally roll it up. Place into the dish seam side down. Lastly cover with the rest of the Alfredo sauce and the last 1/4 cup of Italian cheese. Put in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. And here you are…..

While I’ve never been one to cook seafood at home I decided to give it a spin since I’ve been wanting to add some fish to our diets. The one that I have been making lately has been a huge hit at dinnertime and that’s what I like to call ‘Sheet Pan Salmon’.
To say that this dinner is family friendly would be an understatement. My 10 year old LOVES seafood. I was a little worried what the 3 year old would think since he can tend to be a picky eater but he gobbled up a few pieces I cut then asked for more. Even my husband who isn’t a big seafood eater liked it. For me I’ve always enjoyed seafood and salmon especially. Growing up my family was full of adventurous eaters and I’m hoping my boys will be too as I expand my home cooking skills.
The fish that I used was on sale and already came seasoned with a spicy peppercorn marinade. You can choose one already seasoned, it really added to the flavor of the dish and wasn’t overpowered by the topping I added. This will take one average sized sheet pan. Cover with tin foil then oil it so the fish doesn’t stick. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and chop the asparagus (my favorite-check out my other Sunday Supper recipe Asparagus Soup), chop the onions then put them both in a bowl. Drizzle with 1 Tbs oil, salt and pepper. Stir to coat all the veggies. Now combine the ingredients for the creamy topping: mayo, Parmesan cheese, garlic, artichoke hearts and lemon juice.
Place the fish onto the greased sheet pan. Take the asparagus mixture and layer around the salmon. Spread the mayonnaise mixture on top the salmon. For the crunchy topping you can easily use breadcrumbs to top this off why not crush up some homemade croutons? Place it all into the preheated oven and cook for 30 minutes.
I served this meal with some mashed sweet potatoes. So sweet and creamy they were a perfect balance with the fish. And here you…..
