Egg cannelloni with creamy veg and tomato sauce

We've replaced pasta with freshly cooked omelettes to create a tasty egg cannelloni dish that just might become your midweek veggie staple.

Serves 2

Prep Time 20min

Cooking Time 25min


  • Spray oil
  • ½ red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 8 asparagus spears, ends trimmed
  • 2 small courgettes, thinly sliced
  • 100g frozen peas, thawed
  • 100g baby spinach or rocket
  • 150g reduced-fat cottage cheese, mashed
  • 4 large eggs, beaten with 3tbsp water
  • 2tbsp parmesan-style vegetarian cheese, grated
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, halved if large
  • Fresh oregano or thyme, to garnish (optional)


  1. Spray a frying pan with oil and set over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 3–4 min. Add the asparagus and courgettes and cook for 2 more min. Add the peas and spinach or rocket and cook until wilted. Remove from the heat and stir through the cottage cheese. Set aside.
  2. Spray a small frying pan with oil and set over a high heat. Pour 2–3tbsp of the egg mixture into the pan and tip it to make a thin omelette. Cook for 30 sec to 1 min until set, then remove from the pan and set aside. Repeat with the remaining mixture to make 6 omelettes.
  3. Put 1 omelette in a baking dish and spoon over a sixth of the veg mixture. Roll gently to make a cannelloni. Repeat with the remaining omelettes and mixture. Arrange in the dish, sprinkle with the grated cheese and scatter over the tomatoes.
  4. Heat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Bake the cannelloni for 15 min until the cheese is golden and the tomatoes are soft. Serve garnished with the herbs, if using.
