Braised Beef Cannelloni


We had tons of leftover beef after slow cooking a roast it in the crock pot for spaghetti. This was a great solution for the leftovers! It’s fairly easy and great to freeze and reheat. 

Braised Beef Cannelloni


1 lb. of braised beef (used leftovers)
1 ounce container of light ricotta cheese
1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
8 ounces marinara sauce
1 package of dried cannelloni shells
1/2 tbsp of dried basil
1 tbsp garlic powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook cannelloni per instructions on package.

In a large bowl, mix meat, ricotta, 1/2 cup of mozzarella, garlic powder, basil, and salt and pepper.

Stuff cooked cannelloni with meat and cheese mixture.

Pour 1/2 cup marinara sauce on baking dish. Place stuffed cannelloni on top of sauce. Pour atop remaining sauce.  Top with remaining mozzarella.

Bake uncovered for 40 minutes.
