Chicken & Sweet Potato Cannelloni with Spiced Bechamel & Oregano
Cannelloni is a cousin of manicotti. Both are pasta cylinders filled with deliciousness, topped with a creamy sauce, and baked. The main difference? Cannelloni is made from sheets of fresh pasta (we get ours from our friends at Alfresco Pasta!) instead of pre-formed pasta “tubes”, like in manicotti. We give this Italian dish a Southern twist by filling it with seasonal staples: sweet potato and greens. Some of the sweet potato finds its way into the creamy sauce as well, which works together with warm cinnamon and nutmeg spices to tie the meal together in delicious richness.
