- Make the filling:
Combine the mozzarella, Parmesan, cream cheese, spinach, eggs, and nutmeg in a small mixing bowl. Place aside.
- Make the crepes:
In a blender, combine the raw eggs, hard-boiled eggs, cream cheese, and salt and blend until very smooth.
- In a 9-inch non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. 14 cup crepe batter in the skillet, swirling to spread to the edges Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet and continue making crepes with the remaining batter until you have a total of 8 crepes.
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F. Fill each crepe with 2 heaping tablespoons of the filling. Like a soft taco, fold the side over the filling.
- In a 13 x 9-inch baking dish, place the manicotti. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cheese filling is thoroughly heated. Serve with marinara sauce. If desired, top with additional Parmesan cheese. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to four days. Place in a baking dish in a preheated 180°C/350°F oven for about 3 minutes to reheat.
