EatingWell's Manicotti

2
Sue Palladino of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, learned to make many Italian specialties from her husband's family, including a sublime manicotti that uses thin crepes, or crespelle, to enclose the cheese filling. But after her husband's heart attack in 1994, she began to adapt her family's favorite Italian recipes to their new way of life. To make a more healthful version of manicotti, egg whites replace whole eggs, and part-skim replaces whole-milk ricotta in the lightened up filling.
