I got this from Cooking for Real and changed a few things. But this ROCKS!!!! My family's eyes rolled back in their heads, lol...

This was really good! The filling was not as rich as the sauce so there was a good contrast. I am sure this recipe would work with tortillas too for a more traditional enchilada. I think next time I will replace the sour cream with ricotta cheese. I think I would prefer the filling more without the strong sour cream taste. Also a 13 X 9 pan only fits one box of manicotti shells with a little leftover filling. I filled some of my extra manicotti and put them in a small pan for another dinner this week. Thanks for posting this!
