Cannelloni (pronounced [kannelˈloːni]; Italian for "large reeds") are a cylindrical type of pasta generally served baked with a filling and covered by a sauce in Italian cuisine. Some types of cannelloni need to be boiled beforehand, while for others it is enough to use a more dilute sauce or filling.
Popular stuffings include spinach and ricotta or minced beef. The sauces typically used are Napoletani underneath and besciamella sauce to cover the top. It is a typical dish of the Catalan cuisine, traditionally consumed on Christmas day.
