For setting-baking

  • Fill the cannelloni with minced meat (an easy way is to put the cornet in a pastry bag and fill it).
  • The minced meat must be a little wet so be careful not to let it dry out!
  • Then place them in a pan and add the béchamel on top.
  • Add the grated cheese, toast and pieces of butter on top of the béchamel.
  • Bake at 180 degrees for about 40 minutes until granulated and golden.
