Mana's Spinach Ricotta Roll

97df01b45121b6a9dce7 550

Spinach and ricotta seasoned with parmesan rolled inside crêpes then baked with a savory marinara sauce. Italian flavor with a French twist.















12 ounces spinach
2 cups ricotta cheese
1 tablespoon parsley leaves
3 large egg whites
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 ⅓ cups water
½ cup Parmesan cheese
finely grated
2 cups marinara sauce
olive oil


Preheat oven to 325℉ (160℃).

Cook or thaw spinach and squeeze dry. Season with a little salt and pepper; set aside.

Mix ricotta cheese with grated Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley; set aside.

Mix together egg whites, flour and water, then beat with a wire whisk to get rid of lumps.

Lightly coat a crepe pan with olive oil and heat to medium.

Ladle 2½ tablespoon crepe batter into heated pan. The crepe batter should lightly cover the bottom of the pan in a thin layer. Tilt pan to cover evenly.

When edges of crepe turn lacy and brown and crepe is cooked through, remove crepe and stack on a plate. Continue until all the batter is used.

When the crepes are cooked, assemble the rolls: spoon 2 rounded tablespoon of ricotta cheese mixture and 1 tablespoon spinach mixture on each crepe.

Fold or roll each crepe to seal in mixture. Place rolled crepes in a greased rectangular casserole dish. When the pan is full, spoon marinara sauce over crepes.

Bake at 325℉ (160℃). for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese.



If you don't have a crepe pan, you can use a small (6-inch) non-stick frying pan. You can make your own marinara sauce, or use a prepared marinara or spaghetti sauce.

Feel free to sprinkle some extra cheese on top before baking.

Wow, these look absolutely amazing! I can't wait to make them myself. My family loves stuffed cannelloni but it's so much work to make them, I never thought of using crepes instead.

I tried the recipe but found the water/flour a problem. Added the two it came out total watery. So I gradually kept adding more flour to thicken a bit. Also, when cooked they didn't turn brown.
Totally disappointed. I will make my own crepes.
