Bumping it up. A member asked about Italian appys, & wanted to share this one. I'm not a huge caper fan, so toasted pine nuts is another option.

Well, actually no ricotta, mozzarella and sauce inside the wrapper, but they are so yummy. That's a good idea though - a calzone egg roll. Thanks, Qsis, I'll have to work on that one. :-) Vermicelli could work too - or flat italian leaf parsley in place of the spinach. Good one to experiment with for different fillings (maybe clams or shrimp in place of sausage?).

I've found it now! These look wonderful! Many thanks!

How would it be to break up the pasta before cooking, instead of chopping later?

Yay! Good point. You could crush/break up the uncooked noodles (in the pkg - would be less messy), prior to cooking.

This is a great recipe. There is a Mexican style deli down in Texas that deep fry bean & meat combo burritos; they also make apple burritos and fry those too. Very Good.

When I was making egg rolls earlier this year, I had a problem with the egg rolls floating on top of the hot oil and refusing to be turned. Was my oil too deep? (I had read a post where somebody said: they are done when they float to the top?) My filling was raw shredded cabbage, carrot, onion, bean sprouts, and seasonings.

I sealed my wrappers by moistening the edges around the filling but they had a lot of oil inside. Any reason for that?
