  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup flour
  • ⅔ cups whole milk
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup oil from a jar of Bella Sun Luci Julienne cut Sun Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil with Italian Herbs, reserve tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Bella Sun Luci Extra Virgin Olive Oil for frying the crepes


  • ½ pound Italian sausage
  • ½ pound ground beef
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives
  • 2 finely chopped garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped onions
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp Bella Sun Luci Extra Virgin Olive Oil for frying


  • 2 cans (14.5oz) Italian style diced tomatoes.
  • ½ cup Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomatoes from jar mentioned in the crepe ingredients.
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped basil


  • 8 chive blades
  • Basil for garnish


1. In a blender combine eggs, flour milk, salt and ½ cup of the oil from a jar of Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomatoes Blend until combined. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

2. Heat a non stick frying pan on medium high. Wipe pan with an oil soaked paper towel. Pour ¼ cup crepe batter into pan, tilt the pan to spread the batter evenly. Cook until just set, a few seconds, flip it over and cook a few seconds more until done. I use my fingers to turn them over but a spatula works too. Stack crepes between parchment papers until ready to use. Makes 8 crepes. 

3. In a bowl combine sausage, beef, 2 tablespoons finely chopped Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomatoes, chives, garlic, onion, salt and pepper flakes. Mix lightly until combined. Use a heaped tablespoon meat mixture to form meatballsabout 1½ inch in diameter. 

4. Heat a frying pan to medium high. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan and fry meat balls in two batches adding more oil as needed, about 8-10 minutes. 

5. For the sauce heat canned tomatoes in pan, adding the rest of the sun dried tomatoes and basil. 

6. To make the packets place two meatballs in every crepe, gather the edges of the crepes together and tie with a chive blade. Serve with tomato sauce. Garnish with basil.
