Spinach Pie with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

7 Jun

The other day, I bought all the ingredients to make vegetable lasagna only to come home and be to tired to make it.  Also, I found out that M is very particular about what goes into his lasagna.  He is weird like that. He also has very strict requirements about cheesecake; it has to be made up of cream cheese and sour cream, nothing else. I really don’t understand him sometimes. Anyway, I had an entire carton of ricotta cheese sitting in my fridge, judging me.  I needed to use it in order to justify spending 20 dollars on ingredients that were about to mutate into penicillin in my frig. For some reason, the idea of a spinach pie popped into my head.  Last night, around 11, I finally got around to making it. I am so glad I did. It’s so tasty and healthy.  Enjoy!

Ingredients 

  • 1 15 ounce pie crust (homemade or store bought)
  • 1 10 ounce frozen spinach
  • Half an onion
  • 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • ¼ cup sundried tomatoes
  • Salt ( I used fresh rosemary and sage herb salt)
  • Pepper
Directions:
Press one half of the pie dough into an 8 inch pie plate.  Bake according to directions.  Once golden brown, take it out of the oven and set aside.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Thaw the spinach in the microwave on high for 6 minutes. Once done, press the excess water out. Saute the onions until translucent, add the spinach, nutmeg, salt and pepper.  Saute until there is no excess water left in pan.  Combine the ricotta, the mexican cheeses and the sun dried tomatoes in a large bowl. Add in the 2 eggs and the egg white. Add spinach mixture; blend well.  Spoon the mixture into the pre-baked pie shell. Bake until filling is set in center and brown on top, about 35-45 minutes.
