Wikipedia: Manicotti
Manicotti (the plural form of the Italian word manicotto), literally, “little sleeves” (< manica ‘sleeve’ + the diminutive ending -otto), is an Italian American form of pasta. Manicotti are very large pasta tubes, usually ridged, that are intended to be stuffed and baked. The filling is generally ricotta cheese mixed with cooked chopped spinach, and possibly ground meat such as veal.

Wikipedia: Enchilada
An enchilada (/ˌɛntʃɪˈlɑːdə/, Spanish: [entʃiˈlaða]) is a corn tortilla rolled around a filling and covered with a savory sauce. Originally from Mexican cuisine, enchiladas can be filled with various ingredients, including meats, cheese, beans, potatoes, vegetables, or combinations.
