Spinach Sausage Bolognese Tortellini Recipe Sunday Supper

Great Idea for some existing recipes this weekend! What a Sunday Supper!

This Sunday Mom was making her Spinach for dinner and I was going to make Tortellini with my Sunday sauce and Sausage. Well as you can see a new dish was born! We took all three and made one! Mild and Hot sausage meat browned and added to the traditional sunday sauce was the plan but then I figured lets make my bolognese sauce and mix it with the spinach! This is a got to taste recipe!

Cannoli Dip and Chip Recipe

I really love the cannoli filling in a cannoli, actually more than anything else about them. So why not use as a dip instead of all that hard work of making the shells, filling them and then they are gone in 60 seconds! Well here is my easy fix, I am happy as can be with this mock up dip and chips! 

1 cup whole milk Ricotta cheese 
1/2 cup powdered sugar or more to taste if you like sweeter
3 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
a few teaspoons of mini chocolate chips and some for garnish
1 teaspoon quick cooking tapioca

Waffle bowls found in the ice cream section of your supermarket
Any good grade chocolate for dipping
Sugar or ice cream cones

Mix all ingredients in a medium sized bowl until well blended except  for the waffle bowl (that is what you serve it in). Refrigerate until cold. In the meantime, dip the waffle bowl edges in melted chocolate. Place in refrigerator until firm.  Then fill your waffle bowl that has been dipped in melted chocolate with the cannoli dip mixture. Serve with broken ice cream cones to dip with. ( I recommend sugar cones, you can also dip them in melted chocolate before serving then break them into pieces.) If you can't find the waffle bowls, you can make your favorite pie crust and bake in a small pyrex bowl. Cool, dip the edges in melted chocolate and put the filling that as well.
