    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Heat the oil in a pan, add well washed spinach, and cook down. Strain very well to remove all excess water, chop finely and put into a bowl. Add the ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan and a little seasoning and mix very well till combined.
    3. Lay the crepes flat and place a generous amount of the mixture down the centre of the crepe, and roll up the crepe. Repeat with the rest of the crepes.
    4. Now make the tomato sauce: Fry the anchovies in a little oil til they disintegrate, add bacon pieces and fry till a little crispy. Add the passata and cook till thickened. Check seasoning and add salt and pepper if desired.
    5. Spray a baking dish with extra virgin olive oil and add a layer of sauce. Place the filled crepes on top, then cover with the rest of the sauce. Bake for 40 minutes in the pre-heated oven.
    6. Allow to rest 5 minutes and serve with a salad on the side.
