Delicious baked cannelloni stuffed with aubergine, cheese and tomato sauce. This is a great meal for the whole family. It can be frozen, so it can be prepared in advanced.

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 aubergine, trimmed and diced
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 12 cannelloni tubes
  • 500g pot ready-made Four Cheese Sauce
  • 125g pack mozzarella cheese, drained and grated

Method

  • Set the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200°C. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion for a few mins. Add the garlic and aubergine, and cook for 5 mins, then add the tomatoes with seasoning and the sugar. Simmer for 4-5 mins, until the aubergine has softened.

  • Spoon a generous amount of the aubergine mixture into the cannelloni tubes and put in an ovenproof dish, spooning any left-over mixture into the dish.

  • Pour the cheese sauce over, sprinkle with the grated mozzarella and arrange the basil leaves on top. Bake for 30 mins until the cannelloni is tender.
