Easy Beef Cannelloni

Easy Beef Cannelloni 




With Valentine's Day creeping up on us ( I know it's the same date every year) I wanted a simple recipe that was easy to prepare and one that I could tick off as having achieved some culinary. I've still not attempted my baking nemesis that of the Victoria sponge cake , no idea why but it fills me with dread. Back to the Valentine's Day as lovers cannot survive on cake alone shame though a great big crying same.

Ingredients

500 g of mince 
1 tub of ricotta 
1-2 cloves of garlic 
1 jar of passata
Mixed herbs to suit
Grated Parmesan
Cannelloni tubes
Grated mozzarella


Method 

Preheat the oven to 200 c / gas Mark 6


  1. Heat the some oil in a pan and brown the mince, with the garlic, onion and dried herbs. Next add the tub of ricotta and half of the jar of passata cooked, stir in 4 tablespoons of parmesan ,then set aside to cool.
  2. The best bit is rather fiddly and can get messy ! perhaps you could share this but after all sharing is caring. Fill the tubes with the mixture it does take time so ideal whilst listening to some love power ballads.
  3. As you or someone else ( hopefully) fills the tubes place them with a square dish once all the tubes are filled then pour the rest of the pass over the tubes and sprinkle some grated mozzarella over the top.
  4. Place in the oven for around 40 minutes ( making any adjustments for a fan assisted oven)

Fuss free Beef Cannelloni




Then serve with a simple salad.

  10. Cannelloni looks delicious. It's my son's favourite dish. As we are vegetarian, we use Quorn mince, spinach and ricotta for the filling.

  21. looks yummy, but then anything to do with mince in my book is a winner. Thinking aloud here, could you fill the tubes with a large piping bag in some way?
