  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Let the kids put the beans into a bowl and mash until coarsely crushed.
  2. Set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onion and fry over a gentle heat for 3 minutes.
  4. Turn up the heat, add the peppers and stir-fry for 3-5 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
  5. Add the pepper mix to the beans and stir well. Set aside.
  6. Pour a third of the passata into a 20 x 30cm baking dish and set aside. 
  7. Using a teaspoon, let the kids fill the cannelloni tubes with the pepper and bean mix.
  8. Arrange in the dish, then pour over the remaining passata and scatter with the grated cheese. Bake for 40 minutes, or until bubbling and golden.
