Making cannelloni is a classic Italian dish that is simple to prepare yet delicious and impressive to serve. When it comes to the pasta tubes that are the main ingredient of cannelloni, one of the most common questions is whether or not they need to be boiled before being stuffed with the filling. The answer is actually quite simple: no, you don’t have to boil the cannelloni tubes before stuffing them. In fact, pre-boiling the tubes often results in soggy pasta, which is not ideal for this dish. Instead, there is a much better method for preparing the tubes before you stuff them – baking them. Baking the cannelloni tubes before stuffing them ensures that the pasta will remain firm and hold its shape, while also imparting a subtle flavor to the finished dish.
