Crespelle con Asperagi [#246]
Or, asparagus pancakes to you and me. An adaptation of a Marcella Hazan recipe - hers was veggie, but I added a slice of Parma ham to each pancake before spreading it with cooked, diced asparagus in a rich Parmesan and nutmeg white sauce, rolling up, and baking with a little more of the sauce poured over. This is such a scrumptious recipe, and one that I have cooked every year, probably for the last 15 years or so. Sometimes, I use Gruyere cheese, sometimes Cheddar, but the Parmesan is a must, as is the nutmeg.
