Total time: 45 minutes

Ingredients for 2 people

9 cannelloni noodles

5 lasagna noodles

1 celery

1 carrot

1 onion

1 cup tomato sauce

Parmesan cheese


1/2 lb ground beef

18 mini mozzarella balls




Olive oil



Parchment paper

Step 1/3

Soak the lasagna noodles in water until soft. Brush a piece of parchment paper with water, then arrange the lasagna noodles in the shape of the letter T, then brush with more water. Cover the noodles with a second piece of parchment paper, then press a hot iron on the noodles "gluing" them together. Layer grilled eggplant and prosciutto on the lasagna.

Step 2/3

Drizzle olive oil in a hot skillet, then add chopped onions, carrots, and celery, then add the ground beef and salt and pepper followed by the tomato sauce. Fill the cannelloni shells with a mini mozzarella ball. Use a funnel to fill each shell with the ground beef mixture followed by another mini mozzarella ball. Line up the cannelloni on a lined baking sheet and cover with more tomato sauce. Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese and chopped parsley. Bake for 12 minutes at 350 °F.

Step 3/3

Stack the cannelloni three at a time in the cross of the T. Then fold the lasagna noodles over it creating a giant cannelloni. Chill for 20 minutes. Coat the giant cannelloni in flour, beaten egg, then breadcrumbs. Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown. Enjoy!
