MANICOTTI DI ZUCCA
4 lbs. fresh tomatoes, chopped
2 cups chopped onions
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup half-and-half
3 large eggs
1 12 cups water
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 2 tsp. paprika
Ph cups pumpkin puree (cooked
"pie" or "sugar" pumpkin, mashed,
or canned pumpkin)
11/2 cups ricotta cheese
1 cup fresh grated Parmesan
V2 tsp. nutmeg
salt to taste
white pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the tomatoes, onions,
garlic, salt and pepper in a large
saucepan, and bring to a boil over
medium-high heat. Reduce heat to
simmer, and cook for 1 hour. Adjust
seasoning to taste. Add half-and-half,
and remove from heat. Set aside.
(The sauce may be made up to 2
days ahead and refrigerated.)
Combine all the crepe ingredients in
the pitcher of a blender, and blend
well. Let stand for 15 minutes.
Spray a small (8-inch) nonstick
skillet with nonstick cooking spray.
Place over medium-high heat until
hot. Blend the crepe mixture again for
a second or two, and pour about 1/4
cup batter into the skillet. The crepe
batter should just coat the skillet.
Don't worry if you pour too much;
just quickly tip the pan to pour excess
batter back into the pitcher. Cook the
crepe for about 30 seconds, until the
top is no longer wet-looking. Turn
the pan over and release crepe onto
a dinner-sized plate. (Don't worry if
the first crepe isn't perfect, this is your
test crepe.) You will not need to repeat
the spraying of the skillet with each
crepe, only as necessary. Repeat with
remaining batter, adjusting the heat if
it's too hot. Stack the crepes on top of
