Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, eggs, parsley, salt, pepper, and Tabasco sauce.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread some tomato sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 13 x 2-inch baking dish. One at a time, lay the crepes flat on a work surface and spread 3 tablespoons of the cheese mixture down the middle. Roll each crepe around the filling and place side by side in the pan. Spoon more tomato sauce over the crepes. Top with grated Parmesan.

  • Bake uncovered for 30 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling and the crepes are heated through. Cool slightly and serve with additional warmed tomato sauce and grated Parmesan cheese on the side.

Cook's Notes

This dish can be made in advance and stored in the freezer. When you're ready to bake it, it can go directly from the freezer into the oven for 40 to 45 minutes. If you don't want to completely assemble the dish, the crepes will keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days and can also be frozen.

You give a basic recipe for manicotti, but a sweet? Crepe recipe. All wrong! Redo this recipe. The crepe should be savory, not sweet.
