Cannelloni Recipe

This is one of my favorite recipes and my husband just made it for us over the weekend, so I thought I would share this yummy Cannelloni Recipe with you guys again.

It is NOT a quick OR easy one though – so be aware.  It IS a great one to print out and have available when you want to treat you and your family to some amazing Italian Cannelloni.

What You Need:

For the filling….

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1lb lean ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup white wine (we like dry – cook with a wine you also like to drink…)
  • 12 oz of mozzarella cubed
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 4 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups of milk

For the sauce….

  • 2 cans of stewed tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1/2 cup white wine (we like dry – cook with a wine you also like to drink…)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 12 cannelloni shells

What You Do:

FOR THE FILLING (in one pan):

  • Warm oil in large skillet over medium heat
  • Saute beef, onion, sage, and rosemary – cook until meat is brown
  • Add salt and 1/2 cup white wine – Cook until wine evaporates


  • Melt 4 tablespoons of butter
  • Add flour and stir while mixed well
  • Stir in milk and bring to a slow boil until thickens
  • Stir the sauce INTO the meat mixture
  • Mix in mozzarella, egg yolks

In ANOTHER sauce pan:

  • Melt 2 tablespoons of butter
  • Saute 1 onion
  • Add 1/2 cup wine
  • Cook down to evaporate some of the wine
  • add stewed tomatoes and salt & pepper to taste
  • Simmer for 15 minutes
  • Cook cannelloni shells according to package instructions
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Spoon filling into shells (we have found that using a baby spoon works best) – CAUTION – noodles will be HOT at first
  • Cover with tomato sauce
  • Bake for 15 minutes
  • Let set 5 minutes before serving

I hope you enjoy this amazing Cannelloni Recipe!
