Why can’t Martha cook like me? Seriously. This is the modified version of her canneloni potoatoes…
I am going to try while I am on vacation. I can’t wait.
Rolled and Stuffed
- 3 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 pound each)
- 1 1/2 C mozzerella cheeze -shredded.
- 3/4 cup diced Fuji apple (skin on)
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- 1 piece (2 ounces) Parmesan cheese, half grated and half shaved
- 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
- Freshly ground pepper, to taste
- oil, or cooking spray for the pan
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1/3 cup chopped toasted walnuts (about 1 ounce)
- Preheat oven to 375. Wrap 1 sweet potato in parchment, and then in foil. Pierce several times with a fork. Bake until tender, about 1 hour. Let cool. Reduce oven temperature to 350.
- Meanwhile, peel remaining sweet potatoes. Using a mandoline or a chef’s knife, cut potatoes lengthwise into very thin slices until you have 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. Using a slotted spoon, place slices on a baking sheet to cool slightly. Repeat.
- Remove peel from baked sweet potato, and puree the cooked flesh in a food processor until smooth. Add cheese, and puree until smooth.
- Transfer potato-cheese mixture to a large bowl. Stir in apple, chives, grated Parmesan, salt, and pepper.
- Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with oil, or cooking spray. Place 1 heaping tablespoon filling in center of a sweet potato slice, and roll up. Place, seam side down, in dish. Repeat. (Cannelloni can be refrigerated, covered, overnight; bring to room temperature before baking.)
- Brush oil over cannelloni. Bake until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle shaved Parmesan.
