Small, but Perfectly Filled!

Crespelle Ripiene di Ricotta, Gorgonzola, Erbe Aromatiche & Pomodorini
Little Omelettes with Ricotta, Gorgonzola, Tomato & Herb Filling

You can't beat eggs, every now and again- haha! Get it? Of course you can, you always can and when you do, you can always improvise something good. 

Like these little pancakes, filled with ricotta cheese, gorgonzola and herbs... use up those leftover in the fridge and make something great at the same time!

A couple of eggs, my last chunk of gorgonzola, a little fresh ricotta, a bunch of herbs... it doesn't take much to make a simple supper special and delicious!

Ok- 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons of ricotta, about at 3"chunk of gorgonzola, 5-6 cherry tomatoes, 1 small onion, salt, pepper, nutmeg, olive oil, a dash of milk and plenty of parsley, rosemary and thyme. That's all it takes to make 3 awesome little omelette rolls!

And if this doesn't brighten up a dark, Winters evening, like a bright ray of sunshine- then I don't know what will!

Begin by frying the finely chopped onion, together with the finely chopped rosemary and thyme in just a little olive oil until it becomes golden brown.

Dice up the gorgonzola, add it into a bowl with the ricotta and the finely chopped herbs, then stir in the flavored onions and give them a thorough mixing, using a wooden spoon.

Stir until everything comes together nicely... like this!

The "omelettes" were made by simply whisking together 2 eggs with a splash of milk and seasoning them with a tiny pinch of salt, plenty of cracked black pepper and a good dusting of nutmeg.

Whisk together and then pour out into lightly greased pan and fry into 3 little pancakes.

Now all you need to do is to spread half of each little omelette with the gorgonzola and ricotta cream, top with a few slices of cherry tomato and then roll them shut.

Spread a last little bit of the cheese on top of each roll, add 3 extra thin slices of tomato and pop under the grill for5-6 minutes, until the omelettes begin to go crispy and brown around the edge... mmm!

Just keep things simple- and make things good!
