Meatless Monday: crespelle
Crespelle, the italian name for crepes. My mother used to make them with ham and cream filling and a bechamelle sauce on them, wonderfull!
This is a vegetarian version, I have taken inspiration from a ravioli filling I have seen in this blog
The crespelle were delicious, however, nex time I will use more spice in the filling, since the combination potato and zucchini make it a bit too plain taste
Ingredients (serve 4)
For the crespelle
For the filling
2 zucchini, chopped
4 potatoes, chopped
a bit of milk or water
For the sauce
500gr chopped tomatoes
salt, pepper, oregano
rasped parmigiano cheese
Whisk the eggs with milk and water, add slowly the flour, keep stirring in order to obtain a smooth dough.
Cook all the crespelle in a small pan (I used a 20cm pan) with a bit of oil.
For the filling, cook the potatoes for about 15 minutes, add the zucchini the last 5 minutes. Drain, and blend with a bit of milk.
Spread a bit of filling on each crespella, roll it and put in a casserole dish.
Make the sauce, warm the onion in the olive oil. Add the tomatoes, salt pepper and oregano and bring to boil. let cook for about 30 minutes.
Pur the sauce on the crespelle, add the parmigiano cheese (how much you prefer!) and bake in the oven (180 degree) for about 20 minutes
