Cannelloni is a popular Italian dish that traditionally uses pasta tubes stuffed with a filling and baked in a tomato or béchamel sauce. However, for those who follow a gluten-free diet, this dish can be a bit of a challenge. Thankfully, with a few tweaks, you can make gluten-free cannelloni that is just as delicious as the traditional version. Here’s how to make gluten-free cannelloni.


  • 12-14 gluten-free cannelloni tubes
  • 2 cups of ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups of fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups of tomato sauce
  • 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and lightly grease a baking dish.
  2. Cook the cannelloni tubes according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, chopped spinach, egg, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  4. Fill the cannelloni tubes with the ricotta mixture using a piping bag or a small spoon.
  5. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on the bottom of the greased baking dish.
  6. Arrange the stuffed cannelloni tubes in a single layer over the tomato sauce.
  7. Pour the remaining tomato sauce over the top of the cannelloni tubes.
  8. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the top of the tomato sauce.
  9. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cannelloni is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Remove the foil and continue to bake for an additional 5-10 minutes to lightly brown the cheese on top.
  11. Remove the baking dish from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.


Gluten-free cannelloni may require a bit of extra effort, but the end result is a delicious and satisfying dish that is sure to please everyone at the table. By using gluten-free cannelloni tubes and a simple filling of ricotta cheese and spinach, you can still enjoy this classic Italian dish without any gluten.
