The word cannelloni is derived from 'canna' and literally means big tubes of pasta. These homemade , fresh Pasta sheets are boiled, filled and rolled up into a cylindrical shape to form cannelloni and generally baked in a rich sauce .

Filled with a mixture of baked beans and red capsicum, this cannelloni is coated in tomato sauce and sprinkled generously with cheese.

It can also be made ahead of time and baked in the oven when needed for a delicious, quick meal. Serve this with Garlic Bread and a light salad.
