The word cannelloni is derived from 'canna' and literally means big tubes of pasta. Pasta sheets are cooked, filled and rolled up into a cylindrical shape to form cannelloni. This recipe is a lighter alternative to the cheese and calorie laden traditional recipe. Filled with baby corn, mushrooms, spinach and olives, the cannelloni is coated with a creamy white sauce. You can buy ready cannelloni sheet instead of making it at home. Serve this recipe with garlic bread and tossed green salad.
- Prepare the pasta dough as mentioned in the recipe.
- Divide the pasta dough into 6 portions and roll out each portion as thinly as possible.
- Cut each portion of the rolled out dough into a 100 mm. x 150 mm. (4" x 6") rectangle to make 6 cannelloni sheets.
- Boil plenty of water in a broad pan and add 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of oil.
- Drop the prepared pasta one sheet at a time into the boiling water and cook each sheet for 2 minutes.
