Companion recipe: Savory Crepes

directions

Prepare the crepes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and saute the shallots or onions for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and quickly heat through, about 1 minute. Transfer the mushrooms to a bowl and let cool.

In a medium bowl, whisk the egg and mix in the ricotta, Gruyere cheese, garlic, tarragon, salt and pepper, to taste, and sautéed vegetables. Spoon 1/2 cup of filling in a ribbon down the center of each crêpe, and roll up to enclose. Arrange in a greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish, brush with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until heated through. Serve at once.
