THIS WEEKS RECIPE
Beef, Leek and Zucchini  Cannelloni
Ingredients
Cannelloni Filling
150ml of cooking oil
500g Lean WAGYU BEEF mince
1 large onion, finely diced
2 carrots, finely diced
1 Red capsicum, sliced
2 reasonable sized Zuchinni, finely diced
3 cloves of garlic, finely diced
1/2 a leek, sliced
1/2 a bottle of good Organic red wine ;) ofcourse
1 litre of quality beef stock
25 Cannelloni tubes
Tomato Sauce
3 tins of chopped tomatoes
200ml of chicken or vegetable stock
1 diced white onion
Other ingredients
400g of grated cheese (whatever is in the fridge)
Salt and Pepper
Method
Heat two frying pans and add half of the oil to each pan.
In one pan, add the garlic, leeks and zucchini and allow to sweat.  This will happen quite quickly.  Remove from the heat and set aside.
Once the other pan  is really hot, add the mince and fry.  Once the mince is almost all browned, add the onion, capsicum and carrots.
Once the onion mixture is softened, add the red wine and allow it to reduce by half.
Next add the beef stock and reduce it down until only a small amount of liquid is remaining and season to taste with the salt and pepper.
Remove from the heat and mix the two mixtures together.  Cool in the fridge.
While the mixture is cooling in the fridge, make the tomato sauce.  Add all of the sauce ingredients together in a pot and cook over a medium heat until the sauce reduces by two thirds.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a deep tray, pour a small amount of the tomato sauce mixture to cover the base of the tray.
Carefully fill the cannelloni tubes with the mince mixture and lay them in the tray with only a small gap between them.
Cover the tubes with the tomato sauce and the grated cheese.
Bake at 200 degrees celcius for approximately 40 minutes. 

Have a great week
