Unlike the folded crepes in the preceding recipes for fazzoletti, here the wrappers are rolled up to resemble cannelloni. There is a family resemblance between these and the cannelloni with asparagus and ham. The technique of spreading the filling over the whole surface of the wrapper rather than bunching it in the center is the same. Similar also is the way the asparagus is prepared for the filling, a basic procedure equally applicable to other vegetable stuffings such as green bean or zucchini. A significant difference between this stuffing and that of the cannelloni is that this one is a wholly vegetarian composition.
