This afternoon my daughter asked me what we were having for dinner tonight. She was hoping I was going to tell her it was bat wing quesadilla’s. One of her favorites from the past few years. When I told her no, it’s not bat wing quesadilla’s she let out a wail of “but mooooom, can’t you make bat wing quesadilla’s? I looooove bat wing quesadilla’s!”
No, tonight was not tex-mex night (but it’s coming, oh yes it’s coming), it was Egyptian-Italian night!
Tonight’s dinner: Cannelloni Mummies
I love how the bechamel sauce left an aged stain on the fresh linguini noodles. Creepy.
These mummies are cannelloni wrapped in fresh linguini. Although simple in nature, they do take some time to make, and I used store bought cannelloni! It’s all the wrapping that takes time. But it is well worth it.
My eldest daughter’s first words were “Mooom? Oh man, one look at those and I think I’m going to barf.” I’m not entirely sure if that’s a good or bad thing, but they definitely creeped her out. So really, my job is done.
What do you think of the cannelloni mummies? I’d love to hear what you think in the comments below!
