cannelloni

stuffed and baked pasta tubes

‘Big reeds', cannelloni are pasta squares filled with a savoury filling and rolled around it to form tubes, and baked with sauce and usually cheese; traditionally the rolling was done at home, but now it’s often purchased in ready made tubes similar to manicotti.

Cannelloni is the form of pasta most popular on the former Tuscan/Genoese island of Corsica. In the Abruzzo, cannelloni all'abruzzese uses two kinds of flour (wheat and corn) and three kinds of meat.
