Homemade Manicotti...

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Pasta Week continues with another family favorite,

Homemade Manicotti...




Made NOT with homemade pasta, but with homemade crepes...


Ingredients for the Crepes:

4 eggs

1 cup water

1 cup flour

Combine the above together in a blender until smooth...


Heat a small pan and spray with cooking spray.
Using a 1/3 measuring cup, pour some batter into the pan and immediately
begin to spread the batter around...


Yes, pick up the pan and let the batter evenly coat the bottom of the pan...


After a minute, flip your crepe...


Transfer the crepes to a dish and start stacking.
Make sure you put a piece of wax paper in between each crepe...


Combine a 15 oz. size container of ricotta cheese with one egg...


Spread a nice layer of the ricotta mixture down the center of one crepe...


Gently fold over...


Place them seam side down in a baking dish that has a 
layer of tomato sauce on the bottom...


Cover with more tomato sauce...


Spread some mozzarella and Parmesan cheese on top and bake at 350 until bubbly and hot...


Looking good...



Enjoy your day!
