Description

You may be used to making manicotti with traditional pasta shells, or if you’re into more fancy stuff, with crepes. If you’re into the fancy, read no further. If you’re into fast and easy, you should give this a try. What makes this recipe so easy is that it uses flour tortillas as the wrapper. Essentially, it’s an enchilada made with Italian sauce and cheeses. Even easier, you can layer the ingredients into a lasagna.

Ingredients

  • 15 ounces, weight Ricotta Cheese
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 4 ounces, weight Mozzarella Cheese, Divided
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Or Dried Parsley
  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • 10 pieces Flour Tortillas (6-Inch Size) Or 6 Larger Tortillas
  • 1 jar Or Can (26 Oz.) Pasta Sauce

Preparation

Mix together ricotta, eggs, 1/2 cup of mozzarella, parsley and pepper.

If using the large tortillas, cut them in half and trim a little off the “points” to roll up neater.

Place a couple spoonfuls of mixture into each tortilla. Spread a little layer over the outer “flap” to help seal it, then roll up the tortilla.

Spread pasta sauce on the bottom of a 9×12-inch casserole dish. Put tortillas seam side down on the sauce and add the remaining mozzarella.

If you want to skip the rolling up, use a smaller dish and make layers of sauce, tortillas, and cheese mixture, adding mozzarella to top. It will taste the same.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Serve with meatballs or sausages.

I was surprised that the tortillas turn into manicotti-crepe-like consistency. It’s a basic yet tasty recipe — and best of all, fast for a weeknight meal!

A little bit got cut off the intro page, it should read:
