How to make cannelloni

Why not try?

Cannelloni are large pasta tubes, perfect for stuffing with your favourite filling and baking in the oven. They’re a great option when feeding a crowd as little work is required. Here we give a vegetarian example of a spinach and ricotta cannelloni recipe, but the filling can be varied to suit your own tastes.

1
Preheat the oven to 180℃/gas mark 4
2
Heat a saucepan over a medium heat with a little oil and sweat down the onion and garlic without colouring
3
Add the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper, bring to the boil then leave to simmer for around 20 minutes until the sauce has thickened
4
Meanwhile, sweat down the spinach in a pan and drain off any excess moisture in a sieve
5
Chop the spinach and place in a bowl with the ricotta and Parmesan then season with salt and pepper
6
Transfer to a piping bag then pipe the mixture into the cannelloni and place them into a baking dish
7
Cover with the tomato sauce and grated mozzarella and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes, until a knife goes easily through the pasta and the top is golden brown.
8
Leave to rest for 5 minutes before dividing between plates and serving

Variations

Cannelloni make a great vegetarian main course – try Marcus Wareing’s Cannelloni with spinach, pumpkin and nutmeg. For a meaty cannelloni, try using a Bolognese ragu as the filling, or do what Matthew Tomkinson does and serve a delicious Cannelloni of braised English rabbit with glazed spring vegetables and black pudding purée.
