Fakes (pronounced 'Fah-kehs') is a staple in the Greek kitchen, and an especially filling meal. It is traditionally served with a drizzle of olive oil and lots of vinegar. Though the vinegar is of course optional, try it--it lifts the lentils and adds another dimension of flavor!
My Norwegian grandmother made this for us as a treat, and it continues to be a favorite my mother makes for my kids. Very easy and versatile. Serve rolled like a crepe with syrup or jam. Can also be a dessert stuffed with a sweetened cream cheese and lingon berry mixture.
Shrimp, scallops and flounder fillets are bathed in a creamy sauce of mushroom soup, milk and garlic, then layered with noodles and a rich blend of cottage cheese, cream cheese, basil, egg and onion. Sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan, and bake.
