This pasta bake is a very rich and cheesy meal. It works well with cannelloni tubes or large pasta shells.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
This was really yummy! Only made half, but the two of us wanted to eat it all in one go it was so good. It's quite tricky to stuff the cannelloni though. - 25 Oct 2011
I made this last night everyone was well impressed and my kids asked when I'm cooking it again it was a bit fiddly putting it in the shells but def worth it - 19 Apr 2016
This is the third time i've made this and I love it. I discovered if I make the filling first and put it in the fridge for a while while preping my other items, it becomes firmer and SO much easier and neater to stuff the shells. - 03 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
