Spinach and Cheese Pie Recipe

A delightful and savory pie filled with a rich blend of spinach, cheeses, and aromatic spices. Perfect for brunch, lunch, or a light dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ready-made pie crust
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 10 oz fresh spinach, washed and chopped
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Crust: Place the pie crust in a 9-inch pie dish. Trim and flute the edges as desired. Set aside.
  3. Cook the Vegetables: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  4. Wilt the Spinach: Add the chopped spinach to the skillet and cook until wilted, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  5. Mix the Filling: In a large bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, crumbled feta cheese, and grated Parmesan cheese. Add the beaten eggs, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and red pepper flakes (if using). Mix until well combined.
  6. Combine Spinach and Cheese Mixture: Add the cooked spinach mixture to the cheese mixture. Stir until all ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  7. Fill the Pie Crust: Pour the spinach and cheese mixture into the prepared pie crust, spreading it out evenly.
  8. Bake: Place the pie in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown.
  9. Cool and Serve: Allow the pie to cool for about 10 minutes before slicing. Serve warm or at room temperature.
