2 (9 inch)
1 (10 ounce) package
frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
freshly ground black pepper
grated Parmesan cheese
diced Cheddar cheese
OK, the recipe itself is good but I fiddled with it and came up with a delicious quiche-like pie. Here's what to do. I beat three eggs, omitted the second pie shell and the nutmeg (too spicy-sweet and a strange contrast with the spinach and cheese), cut the cheeses by about 1/3, added sauteed onions and sauteed mushrooms in low-cal butter, and it rocked! (Mix sauteed veggies with beaten eggs.) I suppose making it into a quiche defeats the purpose of calling it a pie, but really, you will save on calories and stress, and the mushrooms and onions give it such flavor. Oh yes and I used part-skim mozzarella with the parmesan and ricotta, both of which I cut, which I said already. The mozzarella melds with the spinach and mushroom flavors and of course gives that lovely long cheesy-string effect while eating. Add salt to taste because the onions do give extra flavor as does the cheese. Anyway, with the adjustments it was yummy, but I can't give it 5 stars since I made so many adjustments. A good starting place from which to experiment.
Way too rich!! My husband hated this. I doubled the amount of spinach because one small package just looked lost and it was still like just eating a bowl of melted cheese. If you decide to make this - and I stress if - halve the cheese mixture and double the spinach. I think it would still be too much.
This is my recipe. I was looking at the reviews and such and noticed that I had omitted an ingredient in the recipe! YIKES! There also needs to be 2 cups of diced cheddar added. Hope this helps out, I couldn't imagine it with it!

Yummy! Added 2 eggs, left out 1/2 the cheese, added an extra package of spinach, & added a little onion powder. Used 2 Marie Callender pie crusts (they don't have Lard in them)
Delicious! Great flavor and healthy too!
Great recipe. I added two eggs, slightly beaten, and it gave the filling a lighter texture. Great either way.
Wonderful dish. I read other reviews and took the advice of others and added sauteed mushrooms and onions into the mix as well as three eggs. I also decreased some of the cheese and omitted the nutmeg. My family enjoyed this as the main dish with some fruit.
We're a cheese-eating family and when we saw this recipe, we were thrilled. I was especially thrilled when it only took a few minutes to prepare it. I served it with long grain and wild rice and it was so good to my husband that he had three pieces! "You don't want this to go to waste," he said. Thanks for this recipe that helps make vegetarian eating fun!
