 Heat a pan with a little olive oil, slowly cook ground beef without searing to prevent it from drying. Add 3/ 4 of the tomato sauce and stir to coat beef with tomato sauce. Simmer for 15 minutes then adjust seasoning. Set aside.

Pack well and place the cannelloni into the dish, spacing them a few millimeters. Pour the remaining tomato sauce over the cannelloni.Sprinkle grated parmesan over the dish.Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Halfway cooking, remove the foil.
