Lunch Club – Sarah’s Cannelloni Alternative (Low Carb)

We’re really serious about this whole healthy lunch thing.

For this week Sarah has prepared a Cannelloni Alternative. By “alternative” I mean the dish was similar to how you would do cannelloni except no cannelloni was used. What??? cannelloni without cannelloni? Yup!

Sarah used omelette instead of pasta! How clever! The end product was this low carb vary tasty alternative to a pasta dish.

But since I love carbs I had to have bread with the dish (defeats the low carb intent!). We served some Tigger Vienna loaf and cucumber and artichoke salad.

Below is her recipe:

Sarah’s Egg Cannelloni

for the stuffing:
finely shredded and steamed spinach
1 pot of cottage cheese (low fat of course!)

for the "cannelloni" (enough to make 4 pancakes on a breville toastie maker):
6 eggs
splash of milk

for the tomato sauce:
chopped garlic and onion
tin of whole tomatoes
squirt of tomato sauce (tacky but i love it!)

mix the spinach and cheese, and roll the mixture in the pancakes
spoon a layer of sauce in the bottom of a baking dish, place the rolled pancakes on top, and pour the rest of the sauce over. top with herbs and seasoning.
