Before you start

Preheat oven to 180°C | Lasagne dish | piping bag | Powerful blender | Saucepan | Tinfoil

Make the 'cheese'

  • Put all the Ricotta "Cheese" ingredients in a liquidiser and whizz them up into a thick cream (it should be the consistency of garlic and herb cheese)

Make the sauce

  • Heat the sun-dried tomato oil in a small saucepan, fry the shallots and garlic until they're nicely cooked
  • Throw the red pepper, chillies and sun-dried tomatoes into the frying pan and cook everything together
  • Put the contents of that pan into the food processor & pulse it in to the 'cheese' (make sure it's only mixed, not blended together - it should be cream with red streaks, not light red)

Assemble the canneloni tubes

  • Put the 'cheese' into a piping bag and pipe it into the tubes of cannelloni pasta so they're well packed
  • Grease a lasagne dish and place the packed tubes of pasta neatly into it
  • Pour the spicy tomato sauce over the cannelloni
  • Cover with tin foil, put the dish in the oven and bake for 30 minutes at 180℃
  • Sprinkle on the grated cheese, then bake for a further 10 minutes.

Time to serve

  • Take the dish out of the oven and serve the cannelloni with a side salad
