  • I made this tonight and I was

    Submitted by Jade A on 24. November 2016 - 18:16.

    I made this tonight and I was so excited.  Preparedd it ahead so my husband and I could eat together as soon as he got home before I went to night shift.  I had a feeling 300g of flour in the white sauce was wrong but thought I better follow the recipe.  My feeling was right as sauce was far too thick and once cannelloni was baked it had like a bread crust.  Obviously I think it's meant to be 30g.  So our dinner was ruined as it was dry, cannelloni was under cooked as no sauce.  If it had have worked it would have been beautiful.  The filling was lovely.  It's a shame as it made enough for dinner for tomorrow night.  Now I have to throw it out.   Can you please adjust the amount of flour In the White sauce?   Also in recipe you have not stated to put in Parmesan in the sauce.
