"Shells"
Mix ingredients well.
Lightly grease and heat a #3 iron skillet or crepe pan.
Use less than c. batter per crepe. Tilt pan to cover surface. When firm on underside, flip the crepe and cook second side.
Lay on clean counter to cool, then stack. Can be layered with wax paper and frozen.

Spoon filling in a generous row down the center of the crepe. Roll, and place in shallow baking dish in which you have put a thin layer of red sauce (see Sauces for recipe). Pack rolled crepes tightly together. Spoon sauce over top to cover. Sprinkle with Locatelli cheese.

Preheat over to 350

Cover pan with foil and bake until thoroughly hot - 35-45 min. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 min. before serving with sauce, sausage, meatballs and optional pork loin. If making ahead, remove from refrigerator and allow to reach room temperature before baking.
