Cook manicotti as package directs, drain and cool. Preheat oven to 350°. In mixing bowl, combine sugar, eggs, ricotta, Parmesan and one cup of mozzarella. Set aside burger tops. Finely dice hamburgers and bottom buns, add to bowl and mix completely. Stuff into shells. Cover the bottom of a greased 13″ × 9″ baking dish with half of the pasta sauce. Arrange shells and cover with remaining sauce. A second dish may be used for extra shells.
Cover and bake for 30 minutes until very hot and steamy. While cooking, butter tops of buns, sprinkle with garlic powder and top with mozzarella cheese. Top Crave-atelli with remaining mozzarella cheese, put tops in oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. Let stand about 10 minutes.
