Chop the bacon, putting aside a spoon for the flat gasket.
Sauté the diced pumpkin on high heat with two tablespoons of oil in a pan and, by the time they formed a golden crust, set them aside. Skip, in the same Pan, even the mushrooms and set them aside.

Gently roll them about themselves and place them in the baking pan, next to each other. Cover the cannelloni with the bechamel, some’ of meat sauce (If you have) and sprinkle with crispy bacon, some’ cheese and butter in flakes. Pour a spoonful of broth to each corner of the Pan and cover with aluminum foil. Bake the cannelloni ragout with pumpkin, porcini mushrooms and bacon for 20 minutes, then remove the aluminum foil and leave the cannelloni au gratin another five minutes or until they are golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to rest the cannelloni five minutes before serving, so that they harden and is easier to remove them from the baking sheet. Bon appétit!
THE PAIRING: A first course decided that we match a red body like Nobile di Montepulciano Docg. We chose the one produced by the company Godiolo and, in particular, We suggest the noble 2008 vintage, with aromas of ripe red berries, pleasantly spicy and round and balanced taste.
