Fresh-Made Manicotti or Cannelloni Crepes Shells

This is really a crepe and not a shell, to be used in your favorite manicotti or cannelloni recipes. These are tender, and in my opinion the flavor is nicer than store-bought. The batter can be flavored by the addition of dried basil or oregano, or use your imagination. Simply place the filling in the center of each crepe vertically, then bring each side towards the center, placing seam-side down in your baking dish. Voila! You have a filled manicotti with none of the time and mess associated with trying to stuff a store-bought shell. I find this method alot more fun ! They will expand during baking so allow plenty of room in your baking dish.
