Instead of regular cutlets or pasta with minced meat, you can make cannelloni. Despite the sophisticated name, the dish is quite simple. You just need to fill store-bought tubes with minced meat and bake them.

The idea of cooking cannelloni with minced meat for lunch was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Maria Shemet (mashashemet). The sauce will add a special juiciness.
