Easy beef cannelloni recipe

Preheat the oven to 200°C, 400°F, Gas Mark 6. Heat the oil and butter in a large frying pan and fry the onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes.

Add the beef mince and brown, then add the tomatoes, spinach, basil and seasoning. Cover with a lid and simmer for 15 minutes stirring occasionally.

Remove the lid and cook for 5 minutes to thicken. Cool.

Fill the cannelloni tubes by piping or spooning the meat mixture in.

Gently heat the four cheese sauce, then spoon over the cannelloni.

Sometimes, the pasta dough used to create the cannelloni rolls is replaced with a crêpe. These crêpes are generally 8–10 cm (3.1–3.9 in) in length and, once rolled, 2 cm (0.79 in) in diameter.
