Nutritional values

This dish not only tastes great, but it also contains high amounts of potassium, zinc, iron and calcium, ensuring strong bones, strong nerves, and a strong immune system. Additionally, the vitamin C in the tomato sauce contributes to better absorption of the iron from the spinach and helps boost the immune system.

If you replace the normal cannelloni with whole wheat cannelloni, the pasta not only tastes more hearty, it also satiates longer due to the valuable fiber and ensures good digestion.
