Italian Enchiladas

I'm trying to get creative with all these wraps that we have. Hmm. How about making enchiladas, but with spaghetti sauce instead of enchilada sauce and a filling similar to lasagna?

And voila! The birth of the Italian Enchilada.

Ok. So, it's possible that someone else has already come up with this idea, but it was new to me and turned out so delicious! I'm excited to call this my own, and I hope you enjoy it, too.
