Bunchie's Dinner Theatre: Spinach Pie


Here's a really easy and delicious dish; kind of like quiche but without all the cultural baggage.

Bunchie's Spinach Pie

1 frozen pie crust, prepared to pkg. directions (or make your own, if so inclined)

Filling

10oz. frozen spinach, thawed and drained or fresh
1.5 cups low fat cottage cheese
1 cup crumbled feta cheese (low fat works great)
1/3 cup grated parmesan
4 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. Italian seasoning (Penzey's Tuscan Sunset is terrific)

Mix filling ingredients in large bowl until well blended. Pour into pie crust and bake at 350 for 45 mins.
You can tart this up with sliced tomatoes and chopped fresh basil if you wish, but it's yummy all on its own.

For your viewing pleasure, may we recommend:
