  • 12 (6 inch) crepes ( pre-made or homemade with one of the crepe recipes posted on Zaar)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/4 lbs mushrooms, rinsed, trimmed and thinly sliced ( about 8 cups of any combination of white button, shiitake, oyster, portobello, chanterelles or whate)
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leave
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 (10 ounce) packages fresh spinach, washed, stemmed & coarsely chopped
  • 5 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded


Make crepes if using homemade & set aside.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Heat the oil in a large skillet until hot enough to sizzle a slice of mushroom. Add the mushrooms all at once and cook, stirring, over medium-high heat until they begin to brown. About 10 minutes.
Stir in the parsley, thyme, garlic, salt & pepper. Cook for 1 minute.
Reduce heat to medium and stir in the spinach. Cover & cook until just wilted, about 2 minutes.
Uncover & add the goat cheese, stirring until melted.
Spoon mixture down the center of each crepe. Roll up crepes and arrange side by side in a 13x9 baking dish. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Cover pan with foil and heat until cheese melts, about 15 minutes. Serve warm.
