  • salt and pepper
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 green peppers deseeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 14 oz can chopped tomatoes
  • 8 oz corned beef
  • 3 teaspoon dried or 1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil
  • cheese sauce see below
  • 1 oz Parmesan cheese grated

for the cheese sauce

  • 1 oz butter or margarine
  • 1 oz plain flour
  • 1 pint milk
  • 6 oz Cheddar cheese grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder optional
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg to garnish optional

Instructions

  • To make the sauce, melt the butter or margarine over a gentle heat, stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes. Gradually add the milk, stirring all the time. Bring the sauce to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently for a few minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Stir the Cheddar into the sauce with the mustard, if using and seasoning until smooth.
  • Cook the cannelloni in a saucepan of boiling salted water for 10 minutes until just tender. Drain and set aside.
  • For the filling, fry the onion, garlic and peppers in the oil for 5 minutes until soft.
  • Add the tomatoes and simmer gently for 15 minutes until thickened.
  • Cut the corned beef into small cubes and add to the sauce. Add the seasoning and basil and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Allow the meat mixture to cool slightly.
  • Fill the cannelloni tubes with the meat mixture, then arrange the filled cannelloni in a greased ovenproof dish.
  • Pour the sauce over the cannelloni, sprinkle over the Parmesan and bake uncovered in a moderate oven for 30 minutes or until the top is crisp and golden.
  • To fill cannelloni tubes easily, put meat mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1 cm (1/2 in) plain tube and pipe mixture into cannelloni.
