Your Recipe Today – Sweet Potato Cannelloni

By Anthony Salemme

Sweet Potato Cannelloni

Serves 6-8

This vegetarian dish is inspired by the cooler late summer temperatures. The sliced sweet potatoes are in place of the traditional pasta sheets so it’s Gluten Free.

3 large sweet potatoes

4 ounces goat cheese

4 ounces asiago cheese (grated)

2 ounces parmesan

1 green apple (peeled and diced)

2 shallots (peeled and diced)

1 teaspoon fresh sage (chopped fine)

4 Tablespoons butter (melted)

Pre-heat your oven to 400F. Bake 1 of the sweet potatoes for 1 hour. Let cool; peel and mash it until smooth.

While the potato is baking, sauté the shallot and sage with 2 Tablespoons of butter for about 5-7 minutes, until just slightly brown. Let cool for 15 minutes.

Next add the Asiago and goat cheese, shallots and diced apple to the mashed sweet potato.

Peel remaining sweet potatoes. Using a mandoline or knife, cut potatoes lengthwise into very thin slices until you have about 30 slices. Trim each to a 2-by-4-inch rectangle.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add half the sweet potato slices, and cook until tender, about 2 minutes; then place slices on a baking sheet to cool slightly.

Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the remaining butter. Place 1 heaping tablespoon filling in center of a sweet potato slice and roll up. Place, seam side down, in dish. Brush the tops of the cannelloni with remaining butter.

Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with parmesan.
