Slow Cooker Classic Cannelloni

Proof that vegetarian versions can hold their own, this meat-free Italian dish is stuffed pasta at its best. Uncomplicated flavours: tangy tomato and creamy ricotta combined with pungent herbs and spices make for a satisfying supper. Serve this slow cooker classic cannelloni with plenty of parmesan and a fresh salad.
