crepes from the Abruzzo

scrippelle 'mbusse

The word is Abruzzo dialect for crespelle, but they're a little different here, finding uses more commonly associated with pasta. Scrippelle are used instead of pasta sheets to make cannelloni or timballi, and in Teramo they even put them in soup: scrippelle 'mbusse.

Scrippelle is also a name for long fritters sprinkled with sugar.
