This Creamy Parmesan Pumpkin Cannelloni can easily be served as a meatless dish or as a side dish. I was incredibly surprised at how delicious this turned out.

Not only me, but my husband and son were very impressed as well, and that means a lot. The filling is so creamy with only the slightest bit of crunch with the added chopped Almonds.

Oh, and please - do not leave this out ! I think the Almonds made this dish a new favorite with my family.

Once baked, the top looked a little dry, but as you can see above, when I pulled the Cannelloni tubes apart all the creamy sauce started to burst out.

I have to admit it was a first for me to make a tomato based sauce, using Sundried Tomatoes, and it won't be the last - this sauce alone, can be used in so many dishes.

I am already thinking, cauliflower with a generous sauce layer and some kind of crunch ... or chicken covered in the tomato sauce and then baked to a juicy tender delight !

  6. Yum I still have pumpkin from the garden, do you think I could make a big batch of the filling and freeze it? I'd probably have to do the almond separate the little ones can't eat nuts but the rest of us would love it.

  7. Pumpkin paired with pasta is really good. I also like the addition of almonds too. The first dish I ever cooked was cannelloni, so I have a fondness for it.
