Christmas Cannelloni, Part 4: Putting It All Together

Putting your cannelloni together is fairly simple once you’ve completed the crêpes, filling, and tomato sauce. Follow these steps and you will have a delicious and elegant holiday dinner!

Heat the oven to 375º. Spoon a small amount of sauce into the bottom of an oven proof dish. Place one crêpe on a clean plate.

Spoon 1/3 cup of filling onto half of the crêpe.

Fold the other half of the crêpe across the filling.

Place the stuffed crêpes in your prepared dish, slightly overlapping.

Once the dish is full, place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the inside of the crêpes reaches 160º on an instant read thermometer. Broil the dish on high for about 5 minutes, or until the top of the crêpes starts to brown. Place two crêpes on a plate and spoon some of the tomato sauce over the top. Garnish with fresh basil, and serve immediately. Merry Christmas!
