2 Tbs Butter ( I used Nutalex)
2 Tbs Plain Flour
350 ml Skim Milk
Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt

In the microwave melt the butter, then add the flour and combine  Cook off the butter and flour for one minute. Add the milk and whisk, cook in one minute spurts whisking in between until the sauce is thick. Add the Parmesan Sea Salt and cracked pepper and mix.

Add 1/3 of the white sauce to the chicken mixture and combine. Roll the mixture into fresh pasta sheets to make canelloni rolls. Place in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray and top with the remaining white sauce. Top with some low fat grated tasty cheese and bake in a 180 degree oven for 45 minutes or until tha pasta is cooked and it loks golden. I'm serving with some homemade garlic bread. Nom Nom Nom
