The home economics teacher at our school made this recipe and shared it with the school employees. It has become a traditional for me to make it for Christmas dinner each year.

I like to make this early in the day and then just put it in the oven just before we are ready to sit down to eat. Homemade bread and a nice salad goes well with this meal.

How to Make Cannelloni

Step-by-Step

  • 1Brown meat and onion in lightly oil pan

    with onion until browned; add spinach and cook for

    approximately 10 minutes. Add remaining

    ingredients in bowl and add meat mixture. Fill

    large pasta shells or lasagna noodles.
  • 2Put light layer of tomato sauce on bottom

    of 9 x 13 pan. Add stuffed pasta in single layer

    and add sauce below:

    1/4 stick margarine (or butter)
    3 Tbsp. flour
    3/4 cup cream (I use milk)
    1 cup milk
    dash of white pepper
    Salt to taste

    Melt margarine in pan and add flour to a

    roux. Mix in the milk (and/or cream) and add

    remaining ingredients. Pour over the top (this

    makes the casserole taste richer and I have left it

    off, but it makes a difference) of the stuffed

    pasta and add another layer of tomato sauce. Bake

    in oven for approximately 1/2 hour and let sit for

    10 minutes.
