As far as baked pasta dishes go, this Beef Cannelloni recipe is the King of them all! The Italians sure know how to come up with some meaty, saucy crowd-pleasers and this one of them. Cannelloni are basically pasta tubes, perfect for stuffing with delicious things. In this recipe, the filling is juicy beef flavored with wine and herbs, melting mozzarella cheese and creamy bechamel sauce, a winning combination!

The cannelloni and its amazing stuffing is then drenched in a yummy tomato sauce and baked until everything is hot and bubbling and gorgeous! For me, it’s always been a toss-up between lasagna and cannelloni but I think this recipe is just too delicious not to be a winner!

To make Beef Cannelloni, you will need the following ingredients:
