Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil, then onions. Saute onions until soft, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and saute 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Add spinach and cook just until wilted, about 1 minute.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine ricotta, parmesan, and egg. Mix well, then add spinach mixture. Stir thoroughly. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Spread mixture into pastry-lined pan. Cover with second circle of pastry. Trim and seal edges. Cut steam vents in top.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.

Very good recipe! I used puff pastry. I did not have ricotta and used feta instead and the result was delicious!

Eh...I made a crustless version. It was quick & easy, but not very flavourful. I sauteed 2 minced garlic cloves and added italian seasoning, cumin and pepper flakes to the cheese mixture. And still, it was just cheesy spinach. Not even quiche like (which was kind of what I was hoping for). Sorry, but not a keeper.

YUM, this is definitely a keeper. I used just a single pie crust and it was plenty of crust. I used feta instead of ricotta and threw in some extra parmesan, plus a splash of milk to make it creamier... I also didn't have onions, but I added some onion salt as well as diced tomatoes, olives, and garlic. It turned out very tasty and flavorful!

A FABULOUS dish to have for vegetarian guests. Great with a glass of wine and good company.

This was a hit! Thanks I don't know why but I put in two eggs instead of one, and it was great with feta! Great as a left over too!

The first time I made a pie, and a party of three loved it. What did I learn about pie making? 1. "recipe pastry" just means the pastry you need for that receipe . 2. You need to roll out the pastry sheet, so do that early in the process. 3 You should oil the pastry tray first. 4 750g of cheese sounds like a lot - three tubs - but it was needed and two bunches of spinach is enormous in Australia - I just used one and that was like a mountain in the fry pan. Good lessons, great pie, more than half left over.

I make a lot of changes to attempt to lighten this recipe. I used 10 sheets of phyllo dough rather than pie crust. I simply sprayed with butter cooking spray and layering 5 sheets each for the top and bottom. I then decreasedt he opin and added 3 oz of reduced fat feta. My husband and I both really enjoyed it. Our 4 yo wouldn't touch it.

Here is the problem with spinach you eat it and you want it all. I just added red pepper flakes to make it spicy.
