  • Preparation Time60 mins
  • Serves4
  • DifficultyMedium
12 cannelloni
400g roast beef
150g ham
300g fresh blanched spinach
2 eggs
150g tomato sauce
½ tsp ground nutmeg
40g grated Parmigiano Reggiano

For the Béchamel

700g milk
40g butter
30g flour
Salt and white pepper

To Make the Béchamel:

1. Bring the milk to the boil.

2. In a separate pan, melt the butter over a gentle heat and add the flour.

3. Once the milk is boiling, pour it over the butter mixture, stirring continuously to prevent lumps.

4. Bring the béchamel to the boil, season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Cannelloni Pre-Cooking:

1. Bring plenty of salted water to the boil, add the cannelloni and cook for 3 minutes.

2. Drain and place on a flat surface, allowing them to cool. Keep the cannelloni separated to prevent them from sticking. Do not rinse with cold water.

3. Barilla Cannelloni can also be filled without pre-cooking. Just add a little more béchamel sauce and cook 10 minutes longer.

Procedure for the Filling:

1. Sauté the spinach in a non-stick pan with a little bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Cool down and chop.

2. In a mixer, make a filling by whizzing together the beef and ham.

3. In a pan, stir the meat together with the spinach, the eggs, the Parmesan, salt, pepper and nutmeg. The filling should not be too hard: add a little milk if necessary.


1. Fill the cannelloni by using a piping bag.

2. Place them in a baking tray, previously greased with butter.

3. Cover with béchamel sauce, butter cubes, tomato sauce and Parmesan.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C, for nearly 20 minutes.

Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
