Directions
1 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes
   or until al dente. Drain and set aside. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).
2 In an 11 x 17 inch baking dish, crumble beef or veal and toss with carrots, celery, onion and
   spinach. Add 1 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 2 tablespoons olive oil and wine. Mix well.
   Place in heated oven and roast until beef or veal is brown and vegetables are soft, about 30 to 40
   minutes. Note: Be careful to not burn the meat and vegetables; this is a very hot temperature. If
   meat begins to smoke, lower oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Stir often while
   baking. Cool for 15 minutes.
3 Place meat mixture in food processor and process until finely chopped. Add cream, roma
   tomatoes, cheese, dry herbs and basil. Stir and return to oven for approximately 20 minutes. Remove
   from oven and lower oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Let mixture cool for 15 to
   20 minutes, then stuff each cannelloni with 2 to 3 tablespoons of mixture. Place in a clean 9 x
   13 inch baking dish.
4 To Make Tomato Sauce: Place Italian style tomatoes with liquids in food processor and process
   until smooth. Set aside. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add 2
   cloves chopped garlic and 1 chopped onion; saute until soft. Add processed tomatoes, 1 teaspoon
