Sorrento-style cannelloni

PT3H20M

Ingredients

1
To begin, arrange the aubergine slices in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Press down with a weight and leave to sit for 1 hour
2
Cut the fior di latte into strips and drain in a sieve
3
Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6
4
Roast the peppers for 30 minutes, turning them over after 15 minutes. Remove from the oven but leave the oven on and reduce the temperature to 180°C/gas mark 4
5
When the peppers are cool enough to handle, peel and deseed them. Cut into strips and allow to drain on paper towels
6
Meanwhile, make the pasta dough. Pile the flour on a work surface and create a well in the centre. Add the salt and egg yolk
7
Blend in a little flour at a time, work in the oil and knead the mixture, gradually adding 1 tablespoon of hot water at a time until the dough forms a ball
8
Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic, for 2–4 minutes. Divide the dough in half and, on a floured surface, roll out 2 rounds 45cm across and about 4mm thick
9
Cut the pasta into twelve 8–10cm squares and cook in a large pan of salted boiling water until al dente. Plunge into cold water, drain, and allow to rest for 15 minutes
10
Rinse and dry the aubergine thoroughly. Drizzle some oil over the bottom of a shallow baking dish and arrange the eggplant in the dish. Drizzle with more oil and bake until browned on both sides. Remove from the oven but leave the oven on
11
Butter a baking dish that will hold the 12 cannelloni snugly. Divide the aubergine, peppers, cheese and basil among the 12 pasta squares and season with salt and black pepper
12
Sprinkle with the Parmesan or pecorino, roll up into tubes and arrange them in the baking dish. Cover with the passata and knobs of butter and bake for 20 minutes
13
Remove from the oven and allow to stand for 5–10 minutes before serving
