How to Make It

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse under cold water. Drain well; set aside.

  2. Melt margarine in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic; saute 1 minute. Add mushrooms, and cook 5 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Add green onions, bell peppers, and vinegar; saute 2 minutes. Remove mushroom mixture from heat, and stir in chopped parsley, oregano, and thyme. Cool. Stir in mozzarella cheese.

  3. Spoon about 1/3 cup mushroom mixture into each cannelloni shell. Arrange stuffed shells in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine Alfredo sauce and basil, and pour over stuffed cannelloni. Cover with foil; chill.

  4. To serve, let cannelloni stand 30 minutes at room temperature.

  5. Preheat oven to 325°.

  6. Bake, covered, at 325° for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle tomato and Parmesan cheese over shells, and garnish with parsley sprigs, if desired.
