Crepes:
To make crepes, mix above ingredients to make a thin batter. Pour enough onto a greased min-stick crepe pan or mall omelet pan to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook over medium heat until the shine is gone. Place wax paper between crepes as they are made to prevent them from sticking together. Crepes can be made ahead or even frozen in this way. If you are going to use them right away, you can also roll them as they are made.

Mix the filling ingredients well and fill the crepes. Cover the bottom of a baking dish with your favorite tomato sauce, then place the crepes seam side down in the dish and spoon sauce over. Sauce should not be too thick. Cover and bake for 45 minutes at 350. Serve with extra sauce and top with grated Parmesan cheese.

You can also use the filling to stuff large partially cooked pasta shells and bake the same way.
