Gluten Free/ Low Carb/ Vegetarian

Cannelloni with Spinach and No Pasta!

This is a cannelloni dish using small, thin omlettes instead of pasta tubes.   Pasta is one of the things we used to eat a lot of before our low carb days and this is a great subsitute.  The filling here is spinach and cream cheese, but you could use fillings such as chicken, fish, cheese and onion, other veggies…the choice is yours. 


Eat and enjoy!

  2. 125g cream cheese (you could use ricotta cheese instead)
  3. 75g Parmesan cheese, grated
  4. Nutmeg, grated
  5. 4 eggs
  6. 2 tblspn water
  7. 1 tblspn olive oil
  8. Salt and pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F degrees.
  2. Cook the spinach until tender (if using fresh). Mix with the cream cheese, half the Parmesan cheese and season with nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  3. Whisk the eggs with the water and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat and pour in 1/4 cup of the egg mixture. This will make a small, thin omelette. Cook until firm and turn over to cook the over side. Remove and place to the side. Continue to do this until all of egg mixture is used.
  5. Spoon some of the spinach mixture onto an edge of an omelette and roll up. Place in a shallow gratin dish and repeat using all of the omelettes.
  6. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese and bake for 25 minutes.

    I would like to try this gluten free recipe but the measurements are in grams, not in cups or ounces. Help!

      Never fear Connie, try about 3 cups of spinach, 1/2 cup cream cheese and 1/3 cup Parmesan and you should be good to go! (I am European and we cook with both measurement…more gadgets in our kitchens!) 😉 Enjoy!

    This is a fabulous recipe! I did add shredded chicken and the next time I will add some roasted green chili. Easy and fairly quick to make. Love it!
