Preparation of the recipe for the ricotta and spinach crepes

  1. To make the spinach crepes, start with the crepes. Put 90 g of sifted flour in a bowl and pour in a little, stirring with a whisk, 200 ml of milk.
  2. Then add 1 egg, salt and pepper mix well so that no lumps form.
  3. Let the batter rest in the fridge, covered with cling film, for at least 30 minutes and in the meantime dedicate yourself to the filling and the béchamel.
  4. To make the filling, wash the vegetables, remove the most damaged parts of the leaves, then cook in a pan with a drizzle of oil without for 7-8 minutes (alternatively you can boil them and then put them in a pan). Squeeze them, being careful not to burn them, and chop them with a knife.
  5. Pour the spinach into a bowl, add the ricotta, 60 g of parmesan and 1 drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Then season with salt and pepper and mix to mix everything. Keep aside momentarily.

  10. Add a little nutmeg and give a last stir and turn off the heat.
