To prepare the cannelloni with meat sauce, you must first prepare the sauce with the recipe that you find here and I suggest you do with a day in advance, because it must be very cold. Once you have done the meat sauce, prepare the bechamel sauce: heat the milk, then in another pan melt the butter over low heat. Remove from heat and add the butter melted all the flour stirring until mixture is smooth and no lumps. Cook for a few minutes the roux on very low heat, then pour the milk a little at a time, stirring with a whisk until the liquid is completely absorbed before adding more. Once you have paid all the milk put the saucepan over low heat and continue stirring until the sauce begins to thicken. Season with salt and add the grated Parmesan and stir until dissolved, then set aside.

Fill the cannelloni with meat sauce: If it's cold you'll have no trouble, You can get it by spoonfuls like a dough and lay it along the short edge of the cannelloni. Be generous, because in cooking it will soften and if you put too little on it your cannelloni will look 'deflated'. Then roll the dough over itself on tight.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees static. Grease the baking tray, pour a few tablespoons of bechamel sauce on the bottom and abundant, stirring a little so that the two sauces mix. Arrange the cannelloni stuffed with meat sauce, next to each other. Cover with the bechamel sauce and spread a little more sauce on the surface. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan and a few flakes of butter. Cover the baking dish of cannelloni with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes, then remove the aluminum foil and bake for another 5 minutes. Allow to cool traditional cannelloni with meat sauce for a few minutes and serve. Bon appétit!

MATCHING: Pinot Noir "Partridge" of the company Conti Vistarino, in Oltrepò Pavese (Lombardy). A red body, with aromas of violets, hints of toast, spicy, tannins and delicate but tasting phase constants. It may be a wine best suited to roast meats and cheeses, but manages to be even in this first course, It's all based on an intense sauce, full-bodied and flavorful.

hello Emma, Yes, you can freeze them. When it reached the point where you should put everything in the pan, you can break down and put in the freezer. Better if they put that vacuum or, if you can not, in an ice bag tightly closed. Consumali soon, a week or two at most. Then for cooking cover with a sheet of aluminum foil and starts at 180 degrees, when thawed will remove the aluminum foil and continue baking until golden brown. Let me know
