Tuna Cannelloni


Assalamualaikum and hello readers :-)

Tuna cannelloni is my youngest DD favourites and it is easy to do, cuma masalahnya nak mendapatkan cannelloni nie, yang so far me jumpa kat tesco jer.  To my fb's friend, so sorry sebab lama pengap resepi nie..hiks..ok here it is :

Serves 4 to 6

50g Butter
50g all purpose flour
approximately 900ml hot milk
400g tuna, drained (me guna sardin cap ayam)
115g Fontina Cheese (me guna cheddar cheese)
pinch of grated nutmeg
12 pre-cook canneloni tubes (bergantung pada saiz baking dish kita)
50g parmesan cheese - grated
salt, ground pepper, fresh herbs to garnish

Method : 

Pre-heat the oven 180 c

White Sauce

1. Melt the butter in a heavy pan, add the flour and stir over a low heat for 1-2 minutes and remove the pan from heat and gradually add 350ml of the milk, beating vigorously after each addition.  Return the pan to the heat and whisk for 1-2 minutes until the sauce is very thick and smooth.  Remove from heat

2.  Add 120ml of the white sauce with the tuna, salt and black pepper to taste, me tambah beberapa batang cilipadi..hiks.  Set aside

3. Gradually whisk the remaining milk into the rest of the white sauce, then retun the pan to the heat and simmer the sauce, whisking constantly, until the sauce is smooth.  Add the cheddar cheese, nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste.  Simmer for few more minutes, stirring frequently.  Pour about one-third of the sauce into a baking dish and spread to the corners.

4.  Fill the cannelloni tubes with tuna mixture, pushing it in with the handle of a teaspoon.  Place the cannelloni in a single layer in the dish.  Thin the remaining sauce with a little more milk if necessary, then pour it over the cannelloni.  Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake for 30 minutes or until golden.  Serve hot, garnished with herbs.

Happy baking :-)
