Love Overflowing

This turned out pretty good and was SUPER easy to make. Emily LOVED this recipe! I will have to try it out on Stephen soon.


  • 15 ounces, weight Ricotta Cheese
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 4 ounces, weight Mozzarella Cheese, Divided
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Or Dried Parsley
  • 1 pinch(es) Black Pepper
  • 10 pieces Flour Tortillas (6-Inch Size) Or 6 Larger Tortillas
  • 1 jar Or Can (26 Oz.) Pasta Sauce

Preparation Instructions

Mix together ricotta, eggs, 1/2 cup of mozzarella, parsley and pepper.

If using the large tortillas, cut them in half and trim a little off the “points” to roll up neater.

Place a couple spoonfuls of mixture into each tortilla. Spread a little layer over the outer “flap” to help seal it, then roll up the tortilla.

Spread pasta sauce on the bottom of a 9×12-inch casserole dish. Put tortillas seam side down on the sauce and add the remaining mozzarella.

If you want to skip the rolling up, use a smaller dish and make layers of sauce, tortillas, and cheese mixture, adding mozzarella to top. It will taste the same.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Serve with meatballs or sausages.
