Cannelloni recipe with monk's beard and robiola

Step 1

Mix the semolina with 60 g of warm water, an egg, a pinch of salt and a spoonful of oil. Let the resulting dough rest for 1 hour, covered with cling film.

Step 2

Trim the friar’s beard, removing the bottom of the stems, and wash it very carefully, changing the water 2 or 3 times to remove all the dirt well. Blanch it in boiling salted water for 3 minutes, then drain it. Then sauté it for 2 minutes in a pan with 4 tablespoons of oil and 2 cloves of garlic with the peel, slightly crushed.

Step 3

Mix the robiola with the grated parmesan, salt, pepper and an egg. Chop a third of the monk’s beard and add it to the robiola, mixing (stuffing).

Step 4

Roll out the dough into thin sheets, cut them into 18 rectangles of approximately 8×10 cm. Blanch them in boiling salted water for a few seconds, then pass them in cold water, spread them on a cloth and pat them dry.

Step 5

Fill the rectangles with the filling, distributing it with a pastry bag into small strands on one of the long sides. Spread a little filling on the other long side, so that the dough adheres, closing the rectangles like cannelloni.

Step 6

Heat the cream with the milk and a crushed garlic clove. Once it boils, remove the garlic and add the corn starch dissolved in a little cold water. Cook for 5′, season with salt and pepper (béchamel sauce).

Step 7

Arrange the remaining friar’s beard on the bottom of a baking dish greased with oil, then place the cannelloni on top. Cover them with the béchamel, sprinkle everything with grated parmesan and bake at 200°C for 10.
