      Title: Mana's spinach ricotta roll
 Categories: Entrees, Italian, Vegetables, Usenet
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
     12 oz Spinach, cooked
           -(fresh or frozen)
      2 c  Ricotta cheese
      1 T  Fresh parsley, chopped
      3    Egg whites
      1 c  Flour, all-purpose
  1 1/3 c  Water
    1/2 c  Parmesan cheese,
           -finely grated
      2 c  Marinara sauce
           Olive oil
 
  Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  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.
  
  MAKE THE CREPE BATTER:  Mix together egg whites, flour and water,
  then beat with a wire whisk to get rid of lumps.
  
  COOK THE CREPES:  Lightly coat a crepe pan with olive oil and heat to
  medium. Ladle 2 1/2 T 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 T  of
  ricotta cheese mixture and 1 T spinach mixture on each crepe. Fold or
  roll each crepe to seal in mixture.
  
  MAKE AND COOK THE CASSEROLE:  Place rolled crepes in a greased
  rectangular casserole dish.  When the pan is full, spoon marinara
  sauce over crepes. Bake at 325 degrees F. 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) frying
  pan. You can make your own marinara sauce, or use a prepared marinara
  or spaghetti sauce.
