- Brunoise all vegetables starting with lightest to darkest but do not mix together.

- While vegetables are cooking, flake Lobster Sensations®. Place in a large mixing bowl, add vegetables and all other ingredients for filling. Very lightly combine ingredients together.
- Add bread crumbs to adjust mixture in order to achieve firm consistency. This may require more or less bread crumbs so have a little extra available.
- In a large sauté pan combine pesto and heavy cream, allow to reduce by 50%.
- While sauce is reducing take pasta sheets and cut into 3x5 squares.
- Place 4 ounces Lobster Sensations® filling in the middle of each pasta sheet square, roll into cannelloni and set aside.
- When the pesto cream sauce has reduced, add butter to thicken.
- Ladle a light coating into a full steam table pan, place cannelloni in pan with the seam down.
- Bake pan uncovered at 350°F for approximately 45 minutes until cannelloni are lightly brown on top and sauce has reduced by 25%.
