Recipes from Today’s Show: Freezer Friendly Cannelloni

Published by

TODAY on MHTV: Meals that can go from the freezer straight into the oven are a huge bonus for busy people. I’m using my light “man crepes” recipe instead of pasta in this dish and filling it with ricotta and Parmesan cheeses; it’ll bake until it’s golden, bubbly and irresistible. A simple but satisfying side of string beans and chick peas is spiced up with red pepper flakes and after dinner is over, I’m chilling out with a grapefruit-thyme cocktail. More from the show.

    I LOVE your show.
    I DVR it daily & watch when I get time.

    I was wondering though…

    Why/how can you use wood cutting butcherblock cutting board and put meat on it & then use the same one to cut veggies?

    How do you sanitise it?

    I have a large butcherblock type of cutting board and a few wooden ones in different sizes, but I use plastic for meats so I can clean them up well???

    Please advise me.

    Lucinda, I am in the process of once again making pizza dough using your wonderful recipe. I wanted to take the time to tell you how much I enjoy the show and how you cook. I was quoting you the other day to my husband and he teased that if Lucinda said so it must be true. I realized that I must talk about you a great deal of the time. I am looking forward to trying this weeks recipes especially the orange yogurt cake perfect for 90degree weather here in AZ. Many of your recipes and techniques are now a part of my cooking arsenal. Thank you for the terrific show. I hope that you and your family (tv family as well) have a wonderful Easter and belated Passover as well.

    Hi Lucinda. Those crepes today looked sooo delicious, and can’t wait to make them. I was wondering how long of a freezer life do they have? Or in the frig once baked? Should they be baked before frozen or left uncooked? Thanks for answering

    I looked up the recipe to make the cannelloni Crepes, but you dont give the recipe to make the crepe. How can you make the dish without that?

    Shouldn’t all of the components be posted together? I was trying to make this, but I cant dig though the whole web site to find the right parts.
