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…..
