  • 5 tbsp flour
  • 4 cup whole milk
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 15 crepes (recipe for crepes is listed in Dessert category)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese


Meat Sauce

  • In a large skillet, sauté onion and carrots in oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until carrots are nearly tender and onions are clear.
  • Add garlic, ground beef and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until meat is browned.
  • Reduce heat to medium, add tomatoes and cover the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce has thickened and tomatoes are soft.
  • Remove from heat and fold in olives and flat-leaf parsley, saving aside 1/2 tablespoon of parsley for garnishing. Set aside.

Béchamel Sauce (White Sauce)

  • In a medium saucepan, heat the butter until melted. Add the flour and stir until smooth. Cook until the mixture turns a light, golden color.
  • Add milk, whisking continuously. Bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly, then remove from heat.
  • Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Set aside.

To Assemble the Dish

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place one crêpe on a flat surface. Arrange approximately 3 tablespoons of meat filling about 1-inch from the edge of the crêpe. Start rolling the crêpe from the side where the filling was placed. Once crêpe is rolled, transfer to a large oven proof dish, seam side down.
  • Repeat process until all crêpes are done. Cover with Béchamel sauce and top with parmesan.
  • Bake until the cheese is melted, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle the top with reserved parsley for garnishing. Serve immediately.
