  1. Cook the lasagne sheets in boiling water for 10 minutes, or until flexible. You will need to be able to wrap them around the pepper and tomato mixture.
  2. Meanwhile, to make the tomato sauce, heat the oil in a saucepan and cook the onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Add the peppers, tomatoes, tomato puree, oregano and mixed herbs. Simmer for 15 minutes, or until all the vegetables are tender. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the white sauce, melt the margarine/butter in another saucepan. Stir in the flour and cook over a medium heat for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and add only as much milk as the mixture can absorb to make a slightly smoother paste. Work the paste to an even consistency before adding a little more milk and repeat. Once the paste has a creamy consistency, gradually stir in the remaining milk and return to the heat. Bring to the boil and simmer, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens. Stir in 30g of the cheddar cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Spoon one third of the cooked sauce onto each of the lasagne sheets. Roll up the sheets and arrange in an ovenproof dish. Pour the white sauce over the cannelloni and sprinkle on the Parmesan cheese and remaining cheddar. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until heated through and golden on top. Serve immediately.
