Instructions

Crepes

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, basil, yogurt, butter and milk.
  • Add the flour, salt and pepper, and whisk until smooth.
  • Set aside.

Roasted Tomato Sauce

  • Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Lightly oil (using the olive oil) a large baking sheet.
  • Dump the tomatoes on the baking sheet, drizzle with a little more olive oil, and salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  • Roast for 20-40 minutes depending on the size of your tomatoes. Remove from the oven to cool slightly.
  • Place the oil/juice mixture in a stock pot over medium heat.
  • Add the garlic, and cook until fragrant.
  • Add the onions and oregano.
  • Cook for 30 seconds more and add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, bay leaves and carrot.
  • Turn down to low and simmer for 20 minutes or up to 1 hour.
  • Remove the bay leaves and set aside.

To Make the Crepes

  • Heat a skillet (8-12") over medium heat.
  • Add a tiny drizzle of olive oil if your pan tends to not release foods.
  • Using a 1/3 measuring cup, quickly pour the batter in, pick up the skillet and twist your wrist in a circular motion, allowing the batter to evenly coat the bottom of the pan.
  • Let cook for a minute or so, carefully slide a rubber spatula under one side, lift and flip the crepe over.
  • Cook another 30 -60 seconds and set aside on a plate.
  • Repeat with remaining crepes.

Assembly

  • To assemble the dish, lay one crepe flat on the cutting board.
  • Fill it with a little handful of the fresh mozzarella and fontina cheeses.
  • Roll the crepe up, and place in a lightly greased baking dish.
  • Repeat until the dish is full.
  • Top with the luscious roasted tomato sauce and fresh parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.
  • Enjoy!
