Cannelloni di funghi

Mushrooms and autumn go hand in hand. I’ve not yet found the perfect spots for chantrelles,  porcini and all other sorts in the woods near my newish hometown. Hence I headed to the grocery store for them. To my disappointment there were no first class chanterelles and I settled for a package of lightly salted mix of forest mushroom. Now I could make my cannelloni.This is what you need for a panfull (3-4 portions)

9 lasagne sheets, 1 tbsp 1 cup of chopped salted mushroom, an onion,  a clove of garlic, 1 tbsp oregano, 1 tbsp tomato pure in a tube

Bechamel: 2 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp flour, 2 cups of milk, 1/2 cup grated pecorino

50-100g of Grated cheese to top the dish (this can be a mix of Parmesan, Pecorino, Mozzarella or Emmenthal).

Cook the lasagne plates if you are not using fresh pasta. Chop the garlic and onion. Sauté them in butter. Rinse the mushroom in cold water to remove excess salt. Add the mushroom and tomato paste, cook for 10 minutes. Add the oregano and pepper. You will not need salt if the mushroom was in salt brine.

Make the bechamel. Melt the butter and add the flour. Cook for a couple of minutes. Add the milk whisking vigorously, you do not want clumps of flour. Add the cheese and cook for 5 minutes of so. Taste and add salt and pepper. You can even use a bit of nutmeg. 

Turn the oven to 180 C. Grease an oven pan. Take a lasagne sheet and place 1 -2 tbsp of the mushroom mix on it. Roll into a cannelloni looking roll, and place in the pan. Pour the bechamel over your cannelloni rolls and put on the cheese. Bake for 20 minutes.

Enjoy!!!
