 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      3/4  cup           All purpose flour
    2                    Eggs
      2/3  cup           Water

      2/3  cup           Milk
      1/8  teaspoon      Salt
 
 ~-----CREPES FOR MANICOTTI Place all ingredients in a blender and process until
smooth. Cover batter and let stand for 1 hour or more; stir well before using. 
Into a well-oiled 6 to 7 inch crepe pan or other flat bottom frying pan over
medium heat, put 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons batter, quickly tilting pan so batter
flows over entire flat surface. Cook until crepe appears dry and edge is lightly
browned. Turn once to brown lightly on both sides, then turn out onto a plate. 
Stack crepes as they are completed. You should have 12 to 16 crepes. Spoon an
equal amount of filling down center of each crepe and roll to enclose. Place
filled crepes, side by side, in a shallow baking dish about 8 x 12 inches (put a
little tomato sauce on the bottom of baking dish first). Then place some more
tomato sauce over the manicotti and sprinkle some shredded cheese (mozarella) on
top. Bake at 325F for 25 minutes or until cheese is melted. FILLING: 2 lbs
ricotta, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup grated Parmesan	 (Reggiano), 8 oz mozzarella, 1
Tbl parsley,	     1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper Serve with some extra sauce on
the side.  If you want a good tomato sauce for that (from semi-scratch [canned
Progresso tomatoes w/basil]), let me know and I will write down what I do next
time I make it (which shouldn't be to many days - hubby can't live without it at
least 2x a week or more). If you have ANY questions, please don't hesitate to
ask. You know I'll be glad to help you, 4 sure. Rita in Scottsdale 03/05/92 10:29
