However, you can make the combinations you prefer, such as ricotta and spinach, so as to adapt them to your needs. These tasty stuffed crepes are ideal for a dinner with friends or for Sunday lunch with the family. Here's how to prepare them in a few simple steps, to get them soft and golden on the surface.

We pour the first ladle filled about halfway and raising the pan from the heat we slide over the whole base, when it comes off the edges we turn to the other side, so we proceed until we prepare at least 8 crepes, two each.
We prepare the filling, in a bowl we put the ricotta, the spinach a little cooled, I did not want to add the nutmeg this time, which I usually always use for the fillings with ricotta and spinach, to give space to the taste of wholemeal crepes .
With the spinach and ricotta filling well blended together I fill the crepes and roll them up as you do with pasta cannelloni. In a pan I put a little tomato sauce, which at this point is ready, and I go to arrange the crepes stuffed with ricotta and spinach inside. I cover with the remaining sauce, a little grated parmesan and bake, at 180 ° C for 15 minutes, in a preheated oven, turn it on before starting to fill the crepes as it takes a moment.
Serve the cannelloni of crepes with sauce after a short rest in the oven, so they cool down a bit. They are also excellent heated.

Dear friends, here I am to present you a dish that can also be made with the "recycling" technique)
For the crepes
250 grams of flour 00
500 ml of milk
For the bechamel
60 gr of melted butter
60 gr of flour 00
500 ml of milk
For the stuffing
Very narrow ragout (or leftover meatballs or other meat)
Do you remember that a while ago I made the stuffed friggitelli? I had 6 left over and tired of always having them at the table, I froze them. The other day, having a desire for crepes, but having no idea what to use as a filling, it occurred to me that I had the stuffed friggitelli in the freezer, so thanks to the microwave, in a few minutes I defrosted and blended them together with a mozzarella .
In the meantime I have prepared the crepes in the classic way, I usually make them without weighing the ingredients, by eye, but the doci are more or less the ones I wrote above, but I'm sure you will have your super proven recipe!
After making all the crepes, spread the smoothie filling and roll the crepe like a cannelloni, for ease, I recommend you cut it in half if you will use a large pan like I did!
Prepare the béchamel by melting the butter, adding the flour and finally the milk, I recommend that you heat it first, so it will thicken in less time. I microwaved it, keeping it at maximum temperature for about 4 minutes, but opening the door very often to mix the bechamel, it burns on the edges of the bowl (I use a porcelain bowl).
Line a baking dish with baking paper. Spread a little béchamel on the bottom and arrange the cannelloni, pour the remaining béchamel, sprinkle with parmesan and bake at 180 & # 176 for the time necessary to brown everything (about 25 minutes).
