Tips

  • Turn any leftover fresh lasagne sheets into cannelloni. Simply moisten lasagne sheets in some warm water, spoon your favourite cannelloni filling onto the sheet and then roll up into a tube. Top with tomato pasta sauce and bake until cooked through. Spinach and ricotta always makes for a popular cannelloni filling.
  • To create your own gluten free lasagne, simply replace the lasagne sheets with gluten free lasagne sheets.
Remember to always check the label of each ingredient to ensure it is gluten free.
