I have not tried this recipe, I believe it is by Jan Purser, but it is gluten free, so thought it would be of interest to a lot of people

Great to find a great tasting gluten free cannelloni recipe! I followed all the directions exactly and found that the amount of beef mince wasn't enough to make the 16 stated - I got 11, so I would increase that next time. Everyone enjoyed these and I will certainly be making them again. Thanks for posting Latchy.
