Crespelle (Italian Crepes)

Crespelles are Italian crepes used in dishes such as manicotti, lasagna and other stuffed dishes in place of pasta. They have a lighter texture than pasta. Make them a day ahead and refrigerate them, or stack them and freeze the unused portions.

Ingredients Needed:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 cups 1% milk
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  •  olive oil spray
How to Make Them:
  • Put all the ingredients in the blender.
  • To make crespelles, heat a 6" non-stick frying pan on medium-low heat.
  • Lightly spray pan using olive oil spray and pour a few tablespoons of batter into the pan, slowly swirling the batter around the pan to cover evenly.
  • Cook about 1 minute. Flip and cook another minute.
  • Remove and place on a plate and repeat the process with the remaining batter.
