  Cannelloni tubes 8
  Dried oregano 1 Teaspoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), crushed (Mince Garlic)
  Tomato puree 30 Milliliter (2 Tablespoon)
  Savory hamburger mixture 1 Pound (450 Gram, 2 Cup Mixture)
For sauce
  Onion 1 Small, finely chopped (Sauce)
  Butter 1 Ounce, diced (2 Tablespoon, 25 Gram)
  Plain flour 1 Ounce (4 Tablespoon, 25 Gram)
  Canned tomatoes 14 Ounce, chopped (1 1/2 Cup, 400 Gram)
  Tomato puree 60 Milliliter (4 Tablespoon Tomato Paste)
  Garlic vinegar 45 Milliliter (3 Tablespoon)
  Sugar 15 Milliliter (1 Tablespoon)
  Mozzarella cheese slice 4
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

Stir the garlic, oregano and 2 tbsp of tomato puree (paste) into the meat mixture. Place in a shallow dish and cook for 3 minutes, stirring halfway through the cooking time. At this stage the meat will not be completely cooked.
For the sauce, place the onion, garlic, oregano and butter in a bowl, cover and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the flour, tomatoes, vinegar, sugar and remaining tomato puree (paste) with the salt and pepper (to taste). Cook uncovered for 4—5 minutes. Dilute with a little water or red wine if the sauce is too thick.
Stuff the cannelloni tubes with the meat mixture. Place them in an oblong dish, pour on the sauce, cover and cook for 12—15 minutes. Place the cheese slices on top of the cannelloni and melt for 2 minutes or brown under a conventional grill (broiler).
