About Cannelloni Recipe

This cylindrical pasta is usually filled with meat or vegetables and then baked with a tangy tomato or a creamy cheese sauce on top. This version stuffs it with vegetables and then uses a mornay sauce to finish

  • 1 zucchini diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 100 grams mushroom diced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • salt to taste
  • For the tomato sauce
  • 200 grams tomato puree
  • 200 grams fresh tomato
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli flakes
  • For the mornay sauce
  • 500 ml milk
  • 50 grams butter
  • 50 grams flour
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 200 grams cheese
  • 12 piece of cannelloni pasta

How to make Cannelloni

  1. Start by tossing your vegetables in hot olive oil and garlic. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes until the vegetables are soft. Season and keep aside
  2. In a large sauce, heat oil and add the garlic, basil and chilli flakes to it. Let it become fragrant and add in all the tomatoes to it along with the puree. Let it simmer for half an hour. Adjust for seasoning and keep aside.
  3. Next, prep for the mornay sauce by making a roux with flour and butter. Stir in all the milk and whisk until it it lump free. Add cheese to it and adjust for seasoning by adding salt, pepper and nutmeg and keep aside.
  4. Now, boil water in a pot. Add salt to it. Drop your cannelloni pasta one by one for about 30 seconds and remove. Blanching the pasta will help make it softer to eat in the final dish.
  5. Grease your baking dish with oil and keep aside. Mix the vegetables and the tomato sauce together. Fill into the cannelloni and arrange into the dish
  6. Pour mornay sauce all over it and bake for 45 minutes at 200 degree centigrade. Serve hot
