How to prepare the recipe: "Tuscan cannelloni":
Boil salted water in a pot and cook “al dente” (undercook) the cannelloni rectangles; drain and let them dry.
Remove all the bones from the chicken and chop the flesh.
Take a pan and fry slightly butter with the onion, celery and carrot; add the chicken flesh, the livers, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Cook for 30 minutes. Let it cool and mix the yolk and 2 tbsp of Parmesan.
Spread the mixture onto the dough rectangles, roll them and put in an ovenproof dish. Spread the cannelloni with the tomatoe meat sauce, spread with Parmesan and cook in the oven at 150 °C for 30 minutes.
Preparation time: 40 minutes

This really good recipe can be a “piatto unico” (main course) for the intake of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids.
I suggest to serve this dish with Chianti dei Colli Aretini, Dolcetto d’Alba, Anagni Rosso.
