Hearty Italian casserole, this dish uses Marinara Sauce and White Sauce recipes, found in the Basic Recipes section.
To make filling, combine browned beef, browned sausage, sauteed onion and Marinara Sauce. Cook cannelloni as directed, but cook for only 3/4 recommended time; rinse and drain. Fill cannelloni with filling mixture and pack firmly into greased baking dish.
To make cheese sauce, warm White Sauce until nearly boiling; add grated cheddar cheese and stir until melted. Pour over cannelloni, coating pasta generously. Cool.
To freeze: cover baking dish with aluminum foil; place in freezer bag. Label and freeze.
To prepare: uncover and bake frozen casserole in 400-degree oven for 1 hour, or until hot and bubbling. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, return to oven for 5 minutes to brown top.
