Tips & Hints:
  • You can make up Involtini up to 8 hours ahead and store covered in the fridge or make up to the end of step 2 and freeze. Thaw completely before cooking.
  • Swap out the semi-dried tomatoes for char-grilled capsicum or use a mixture of chopped antipasto mix.
  • Add chopped rosemary, thyme or chives to incorporate a fresh herb flavour.
