This version of cannelloni al Forno is just as cheesy and deliciously savory as the original, but it's completely dairy-free! Gluten-free cannelloni are stuffed with a savory mixture of quinoa, sautéed mushrooms and zucchini, diced tomatoes, and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Then, they're topped with a layer of tomato sauce followed by a layer of vegan cheese shreds that get stretchy and melty in the oven. If you are looking for a stunning vegan pasta dish, look no further than to these cannelloni.
