White Boboli

Stock up on Bobolis when they go on sale and you always have a great dinner ready to go – I add some sauce and layer mine up with all the different leftovers from the week. This time I skipped the sauce and did a ‘white’ boboli using up left over ricotta and spinach. It was scrumptious !
