“Manicotti are just Italian enchiladas” is a related saying.


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.

Me to dad: enchiladas are like Mexican manicotti and and tamales are like stuffed cabbage where you don’t eat the leaves. I speak dad.

but you’re ignoring the technique!!! enchiladas wrap cylindrically around the filling whereas lasagnas are layered. if anything, enchiladas are just Mexican manicotti

I have a theory that all cuisines are variations on themes. What are enchiladas but Mexican manicotti? What’s the difference between bouillabaisse and cioppino? I could go on…

Which came first: manicotti or enchiladas? Because manicotti is just Italian enchiladas. But enchiladas are just Mexican manicotti.
