“This dish is best made with fresh noodles. You can substitute one pound of cannelloni pasta cooked according to package directions, then proceed as directed.” - by MARBALET
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Heat the olive oil in a deep skillet. Add onion, celery, and carrot, and cook over moderate heat until softened. Add the garlic, and cook 1 minute. Add veal, pork, and beef. Cook, stirring occasionally, until meat is no longer pink. Add wine, and reduce for 1 minute. Stir in broth. Add herbs, bay leaf, and salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Uncover, and reduce until almost dry. Discard bay leaf. Set aside to cool.
- Meanwhile, melt the butter or margarine in a saucepan set over moderately low heat. Whisk in flour for approximately 2 minutes. Whisk in milk, grated nutmeg, and salt and pepper. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until thickened. Stir in parsley and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.
- Transfer the cooled meat mixture to a large bowl. Mix in egg yolks. Mix in the cheese and parsley sauce. Set aside.
- Combine the tomato sauce and cream, set aside.
- Cut the pasta sheets crosswise into 5 inch lengths. In a pot of boiling salted water, cook the noodles a few at a time until al dente. This should take only a minute or two with fresh pasta. Transfer to a bowl of cold water. Spread the noodles in one layer on paper towels to drain.
- Spoon 1/4 cup of the filling down the center of one noodle, and roll the noodle to enclose the filing. Transfer the cannelloni, seam side down, to a well buttered gratin dish. Repeat with the remaining noodles and filling, arranging in single layer. Ladle the tomato sauce over the cannelloni, and sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
- Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 10 minutes, or until bubbling. Run under the broiler about 4 inches from the heat for 2 minutes, or until golden.

"Another reviewer put it very aptly...this is heaven on a plate! I doubled the garlic and the rosemary, added spinach and chopped mushrooms to the meat mixture, accidentally added the Bechamel Sauce i..." See moren with the Tomato Sauce (to which I also added fresh basil, more wine ( a Pinot Grigio) and so I had to prepare a bit more of a roux... added that into the meat mixture, along with the egg yolks and more parsley. I used alot more Locatelli Romano cheese, in all places... and topped the dish with shredded Mozzarella before baking for 20 minutes. Holly, this is an exceptional recipe! I would encourage anyone with a bit of time on their hands to try it. It will not disappoint. I ended up turning my sauce for this dish into a Parma Rosa type of thing, and it was excellent. I also used the Manicotti Shell recipe from this site... and pulsed the meat mixture in my food processor for the type of cannelloni meat texture that I am accustomed to. What a deliciously light and rich (at the same time) dish we enjoyed! This was even better the next day! My family says I outdid myself here. Served with a 1986 Robert Mondavi Gamay Rose, a Caesar Salad and toasted Italian Bread smothered with Garlic Butter, also from Allrecipes. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
"this is so delicious! Thank you Holly. some changes I've made: it didn't seem right to me to cook vegetables first, before adding meats. so I cooked them separately and then mixed together. I..." See morenstead of celery I added mushrooms( we're not big fans of cooked celery). I also used mozzarella cheese instead of parmesean which suits our tastes better. One other change I would make next time is use a little less of the tomato and whipping cream sauce over cannelloni, since the meat mixture is soooooo good and the sauce overpowers it a little. otherwise so wonderful. thank you so so much HOlly. My husband really liked it."
