I found this recipe in Rachael Ray's magazine and made it my own. As a kid, crepes (palachinche) in my house was a dessert filled with jelly, rolled like a cigar and eaten before my mother can put them on the table. So I thought it was cool that they were incorporated into this dish. I have to say, I willl never use store bought manicotti for this dish!
