Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Layer ¼ cup of marinara sauce into the bottom of two individual 4-inch x 3-inch baking dishes.
Fold together the cooked chicken, spinach, ricotta, egg, ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, dried oregano, dried basil, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
Spoon the ricotta filling into a large sealable plastic bag. Remove air from the plastic bag and cut off one of the corners making sure it’s slightly smaller than the opening of the cannelloni. Stuff filling into each cannelloni shell.
Spread the cannelloni shells evenly between the baking dishes. Top with remaining marinara sauce, Parmesan and Mozzarella. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes until cheese is golden.
Transfer to plate, garnish and serve.
