Olivia's mum was pleasantly surprised when Olivia enjoyed her first meal of Cannelloni.  Now it's Olivia's favourite meal. 
Ingredients:
Filling:
1 pack of frozen spinach (250grams), thawed
225 grams of cottage cheese
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1/2 a cup of cheese, grated
1 egg
1/2 a teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 and 1/2 packets of Cannelloni tubes
225 grams of cottage cheese

Topping:
1 jar of ready made tomato pasta sauce
225 grams of sour cream
2/3 of a cup of grated cheese

Instructions:
Mix the thawed spinach, cottage cheese, garlic, grated cheese, egg, nutmeg and salt in a bowl then fill the dry Cannelloni tubes with the mixture. 
Pour a third of the pasta sauce into the bottom of a large oven proof dish then place the filled tubes over the bottom of the dish, in one layer. Pour the rest of the pasta sauce over the top of the tubes.
Stir the sour cream so it is fairly runny and mix in half of the grated cheese.  Pour this over the pasta sauce and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top.
Cook at 200 degrees Celsius for 30 - 35 minutes.  Allow to cool a little before serving.

Notes:
If there is any left over it is just as tasty the next night.
