Step 1: Preparing Your Mise en Place

Preparing Your Mise en Place
  • 1 1/2 cups Almond Herb Pâté
  • 2 medium zucchini, thinly-sliced, preferably on a mandolin


First, prepare the Almond Herb Pate per the recipe instructions and set aside.

Then, slice the zucchini into thin strips, preferably on a mandolin and lay them out on a clean surface.

Step 2: Rolling & Serving the Cannelloni

Rolling & Serving the Cannelloni
  • 1 cup Raw Marinara Sauce (optional)
  • a few sprigs of italian flat leaf parsley for garnish


To roll the cannelloni, take two of the zucchini strips and slightly overlap lengthwise one over the other. Place a spoonful of the pâté on top of the strips, about a third of the way down. Fold the end closest to you over the pâté and pull back to tighten.

Roll the the rest of the length fairly tightly, making sure none of the filling comes out from either end.

To serve, place on a large plate or platter and garnish each cannelloni with a leaf of italian parsley. Serve Raw Marinara on the side for dipping.

    I love this recipe! But now I've got lasagna on my mind. Would this work well within a baked zucchini lasagna?

    Hi Tina: It works well with lasagna. You can use noodles if you wish. If you use zucchini, cut them to about 1/4" thickness, and lay them out on a towel first to absorb some liquid so that the zucchini do not get soggy in the baking dish. Happy Cooking, Char
