Oyster Mushroom Cannelloni

I love mushrooms, and I had to apply some thought to this challenge so that I did not end up repeating a theme by making lasagna with mushrooms. I had wanted to make ravioli but I ran out of time and used my pasta sheets to make cannelloni. This was the first time I had attempted this, and it won’t be my last. The word cannelloni derives from the word canna (reed) and literally means ‘big tubes’. (Larousse). Here is my recipe for Oyster Mushroom Cannelloni.

While editing this post 9 years down the line I realize that I have not made cannelloni again. I am not sure why not as we love baked pasta. And fresh pasta is so easy to make at home. It is as simple as taking 100g of 00 flour, a pinch of salt and one egg. This is enough for one person, or the 4 pasta sheets this recipe calls for. I am a lazy pasta maker so I use the machine to make the dough. I don’t bother to knead it too much. After resting in the fridge for half an hour I let my pasta roller do all the work!
