DIRECTIONS

  • Wash spinach and remove stalks.
  • Place in bowl and microwave for a very short time- divide the spinach leaves into 2-3 bunches, cover and cook a bunch at a time.
  • Spinach should be limp.
  • Drain well- squeeze as much liquid from cooked spinach as you can.
  • Chop roughly.
  • Add finely chopped onion, the Feta, Romano and Ricotta Cheese.
  • Mix well.
  • Add ground nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  • Add lightly beaten egg.
  • Set aside.
  • CREPES-----------------.
  • Method: Sift flour and salt into a bowl.
  • Add eggs and a little milk.
  • Beat well.
  • Add the remaining milk and lastly the melted butter.
  • Heat oil in crepe pan (or use spray).
  • Pour about 3-4 tablespoons of crepe mixture into pan- enough to cover the base of the pan thinly and evenly.
  • Cook over high heat for about 1 minute until mixture looks as though it is setting on the top and the underneath is lightly browned.
  • Turn crere over and cook the other side for about 1/2 a minute.
  • Remove from pan and place on piece of waxed paper.
  • Continue until all the crepe mixture is used up.
  • This recipe should yield approx.
  • 12 crepes.
  • Place wax paper between crepes as you remove each one from the pan.
  • ASSEMBLE THE CREPES------------.
  • Place even amounts of Spinach mixture in the centre of each crepe.
  • Fold crepe into a'parcel' and place in lightly greased baking dish.
  • I usually have enough mixture for 8 crepes.
  • Over the crepes spoon some Italian Tomato Sauce (easy to make)- onions, garlic, canned tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt and pepper.
  • And then sprinkle lots of grated mozarella cheese!
  • Place in moderate oven about 15-20 minutes.
  • This recipe may seem fidley to some or alot of work but it's not really- believe me.
  • The recipe is always nicer a day old and re-heated.
  • Typing the recipe out has got my salivary glands going- I think I'll have to make it soon again.
  • Cooked, diced chicken can also be added to the Spinach mixture.
