The Comfort of Simple Foods – Stuffed Cannelloni
Posted By Michele On October 31, 2011 @ 5:13 am In Pasta & Pizza,Special | 1 Comment
My son called me the other day for guidance on how to make stuffed cannelloni. Do I boil the pasta tubes first? Yes, but don’t overcook them. What do I stuff them with? Anything you want, but try some meat and cheese. Do I bake them then? Yes. Actually, all he needed to do was look at the box of cannelloni tubes – there are both meat and cheese stuffing recipes on the back.
It’s rare that either of my boys inspires me to cook something, but I had cannelloni on my mind for a few days after that. My husband loves simple, comfortable pasta dishes like this, and frankly, with my cookbook project he’s been relegated to eating whatever I was testing and photographing that day. Don’t get me wrong, he loved the prosciutto wrapped scallops and the lobster mac and cheese. But there is something comforting in a good old fashioned pan of stuffed cannelloni. So I took a break on Friday night and made him this for dinner. He loved it – and I hope you will too.
