--- for the crespelle ---
2 whole eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour -- unbleached
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 1/4 tablespoons unsalted butter -- melted, plus extra
--- for the besciamella ---
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
--- for the filling ---
2 stalks celery -- sliced
2 medium leeks -- white only, sliced
2 medium carrots -- sliced
1 cup mushrooms -- sliced
1 teaspoon salt and pepper
2 sprigs thyme -- minced
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
18 large shrimp -- (scampi), shelled
1/3 cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons parmigiano-reggiano cheese grated

Preparation / Directions:

Make 4" crespelle: Combine the eggs, flour, and a pinch of salt in a bowl; pour in the milk, beating constantly with a whisk. Add the butter. Heat a lightly buttered pan and pour in a little batter, tilting the pan to spread out the batter. Cook until golden on both sides, about 1 minute, turning once. Repeat with the remaining batter; you should have 18 crespelle. You can prepare the crespelle up to 3 days ahead. Make the besciamella: Melt the butter in a pan. Add the flour; cook over medium heat 4 minutes, stirring. Whisk in the milk; cook until boiling and thick, whisking. Make the filling: Saute the celery, leeks, carrots, mushrooms, salt, pepper, and thyme in 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the scampi and wine; when the wine evaporates, fold in the besciamella. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Butter 6 individual souffle dishes or ramekins. Fill each with 3 crespelle, layered with the scampi and topped with the Parmigiano and the remaining butter. Bake until hot and lightly browned. Serve.
