Ham and Cheese Cannelloni

1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese, or cottage cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 large egg
1 (15 ounce) jar Alfredo Sauce, or make your own
8 egg roll wrappers (available in the frozen Asian or refrigerated section)
8 slices deli ham
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta, mozzarella and the egg.
2. Reserve 3/4 cup of Alfredo Suace and spread the reamining sauce in the bottom of a 9X13 baking dish.
3. Arrange an egg roll wrapper on a work surface.  Spread 3 tbsp of the ricotta mixture over the wrapper, cover with a slice of ham, then roll up to form a log, jelly roll style.  Repeat with the remaining wrappers and place the cannelloni seam side down, in a single layer in the baking dish.
4. Spoon the reserved Alfredo Sauce over the cannelloni, top with cheese and back for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
