BAKED VEG CHEESE AND VEAL CANNELLONI

baked-cannelloni-plated

BAKED VEG CHEESE AND VEAL CANNELLONI

We use the other white plant meat for this fine American-Italian casserole. Veg veal! I think I’ve had veal once or twice aside from a luncheon sandwich meat called veal loaf back in the long ago days. I recall it not having much flavor – not the loaf that tasted more like bologna, but the fresh pounded cutlets.

Mild in flavor, soft when ground, which is what we did here. We, meaning me. I figured I must have had some divine or other intervention help on this one, since I nailed it first time. On my birthday too! Had no idea I’d be cooking today. Must be that Alpha Lipoid Acid I’m taking that fixes fatigue. It works.

What a treat. OMGod does this have meat in it? And the sauce!! All so rich, all so wonderful!

Makes 14 stuffed cannelloni
