Egg Roll Manicotti


This manicotti was easy and super delicious.  It tasted like it was from our favorite restaurant.  I used egg roll wrappers in place of the pasta tubes, since they are basically just fresh pasta sheets. They turned out great, and I didn't have to boil the pasta sheets! That is always a win in my book.

I used a three cheese mixture, but I think this would be a really good dish to sneak in some spinach. I am going to start adding frozen spinach to my standard items to keep in my freezer so I can add it so some dishes on the fly. This made 12 manicotti rolls.  I made the whole batch and ate some for lunch the next day.  This would also be a great dish to freeze for a quick weeknight meal.
