This recipe came from TV Guide, April 1975. I was 9 years old and I asked my mom what was for dinner and she said "spinach pie". Well, I hated spinach and was very unhappy about the upcoming dinner. Anyway, my mom made the pie and I tried a piece anyway, and I LOVED IT!!!! I have loved spinach ever since that day. Now my children eat this pie and they love it. I always use the frozen chopped spinach. You can also bake this without a crust, just grease the pie plate well and bake as usual. This pie tastes even better the next day. Tastes good cold, warm or room temp.

This was great. I had it for dinner (one of my sons ate 2 pieces) and then took leftovers for lunch. Very good.

Awesome filling...and easy to make! Photo indicated my pie crust rim crumbled when I removed...but it didn't change the taste of this wonderful spinach pie. Made for PAC Sprg. 07.
