Preparation steps

Heat the oven to 200°C (180°C in a fan oven), 400°F, gas 6.
Briefly blanch the spinach in salted water. Quench in iced water, drain and squeeze out the moisture, then finely chop. Add the garlic and ricotta, the egg and half of the parmesan and mix well. Season with ground black pepper, nutmeg and salt (if necessary). Mix the ingredients to form a smooth, spreadable paste. Spoon into a piping bag and pipe into the cannelloni.
For the béchamel sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan, dust the flour over the top and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring. Pour in the milk and simmer for 3-4 minutes, stirring. Season to taste with salt, ground black pepper and nutmeg.
For the tomato sauce, fry the shallot in a pan in hot oil for 1-2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and simmer for around 5 minutes. Season with salt and ground black pepper.
To assemble the dish, spread some of the tomato sauce over the base of the casserole dish. Place half the cannelloni tubes on top and drizzle with béchamel. Repeat this process, finishing with the béchamel. Sprinkle over the remaining parmesan and bake in the oven for around 45 minutes.
