1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

2 x 410g tins crushed tomatoes

1/4 tsp oregano

2 cloves garlic

44) Cut each lasagna sheet into thirds, and place pumpkin mixture along the length of each sheet, then roll and form into a tube (resembling cannelloni). Lay each roll into bottom of slow cooker.

55) Combine tomatoes, oregano, sugar, salt and pepper then pour over the top, and cover with mozzarella and remaining Parmesan cheese.

6Cook on high for 2 - 3 hours (pending on your slow cooker) or until pasta is cooked and cheese is melted.


8If crushed tomatoes are too chunky for your liking, you can blend them down to a smoother consistency.

Very tasty and with the pumpkin and pine nuts its a change from the plain old spinach and ricotta cannelloni. Its a regular dish in our household.
