They were great, the flavours were so good, I ended up serving this as a family dinner, not just for the kids, and we all loved it, my husband included.
You can make them just ham and cheese or just spinach and ricotta, just double the filling quantities. However as the fillings are so easy to put together, I like to make half ham and cheese, half spinach and ricotta, as we love both fillings.
The crepes are the only tricky thing here, but with practice making crepes is so easy, you won't even use a recipe after a few goes at it.
To cook the spinach you just need to be place it in a colander, place the colander in the sink and slowly pour over a kettle of hot water. Leave to wilt and cool. Squeeze out any excess water and chop it up. But to be honest I have also just put the spinach in the crepes uncooked when I have been time poor, it works also.
So if you are looking at a simple, tasty new idea for dinner, try these, they are delicious.
