Now this is one of my favorite non bbq dish. It's the spinach ricotta cannoli.It is an vegetarian style dish,but you can make it with meat too. This is so easy to make and so delicious. For the filling you need 600gr fresh spinach leaves,1tsp nutmeg,2 cloves garlic crushed and 1 onion fine chopped. Glace the garlic and onion,add the spinach and nutmeg. It seems there is not much left from the spinach,but it is enough for 4 servings. let the spinach cool down and remove the water from it. Chop the spinach real fine,add the ricotta and mix well. In the meantime you can make a mix from 300 gr minced meat,1 can peeled tomato,and 1 can mashed tomato. Put the meat mix in the casserole. Do the mix of spinach/ricotta in a piping bag, and fill the cannoli tube's. Make a white sauce from creme fraise,grated Italian cheese,and pepper&salt to taste. Add it on the cannoli and shove it in a pre-heated oven for 45 minutes. Enjoy with a red Torres wine.
