Wow. Very happy with how this turned out. Was delish. Used whole bottle, 400ml of passata. Layered tasty and parmesan on top. Cooked on low 3 hrs. My slowcooker cooks hot. Hubby very impressed ๐Ÿคค

A family favourite always

No tea towel needed – it will always state if it’s used ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi do I need to use the tea towel method for this if using cannelloni tubes? If so what are the times? Thanks

Will definitely make this again, only thing I did different is that I used 2x 500ml passata sauce, cause we like lots of sauce.

Absolutely delicious! I added mince to the filling – as my better half loves his meat (cooked the mince in pan with spices/mixed it in with the filling) decided to use the whole egg, used fresh spinach and picked out my favourite pasta sauce to go with the topping. Quick and easy meal to make.

First time making tonight! It didnโ€™t come out perfect, and I took some notes for next time… but there will definitely be a next time because this was delicious!! Yummy and a nice simple meat free meal. I used a tin of diced tomatoes as I didnโ€™t have passata, and I made a small amount of white sauce as I didnโ€™t have cream. Next time will definitely try it with passata and plenty of it (think it needs moisture..?) and I also double stacked my rolls which left the middle a little dry so wonโ€™t double stack again. Still… cheesy, tomatoey tasty goodness… definitely going on the repertoire for fine tuning perfection! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

This was absolutely delightful for lunch. First time ricotta eater. Next time I would use more passata (i used 2 thirds of a bottle) or use my wife’s excellent suggestion, pouring leftover bolognese sauce over the cannelloni

Made this for dinner tonight, would have to say it was one of my favourites. Hubby even went back for seconds. Just stuck to the recipe minus the basil ๐ŸŒฟ
Next time I will make a double batch. Yummy ๐Ÿ˜‹

I have made this many times. I use fresh pasta sheets and roll up with a bit of mixture. I adapt the recipe to what I have eg tins of tomato instead of passata and I like extra sauce ๐Ÿ˜. I don’t use the cream in the sauce as I don’t want to add it. Works beautifully every time

You could… or tasty

Sorry to bother people. Do we need the cream? And also i am using lasagna sheets gluten free, can i use egg wash to make it into a tube?

You can add chicken or pork mince plus I grate some nutmeg into the mixture

I tried this tonight and I did need to add more passata & cream at the hour mark, possibly due to my SC’er
But it was a really lovely dish, and next time I will just tweak the sauce slightly for our tastes, and will try fresh lasagne sheets rolled up next time instead of the bought cannelloni tubes.
But it will definitely be made again – thanks for sharing

Thanks for sharing this recipe!
This is something that I wouldn’t usually make during the week but I was really happy with how it came out. I will make a few changes next time:
– Needed more of the passata sauce (I would use a big jar next time)
-500 gram ricotta so that I could have filled all the cannelloni shells and had enough for left overs
Also my slow cooker is really hot so it only needed 3ish hours on low

Absolutely delicious….very creamy and didn’t have the burnt ends like mine used to in the oven

Used a whole jar of sauce instead of 3/4cup…..now looking for more variations

Made this today for lunch. Didn’t adjust the recipe in any way and it was delicious. Really easy to prepare and very tasty. Can see I will be making this regularly as it was a hit with the whole family.
