    Tannic's Note:

    This experiment grew out of a neighbor's gift of excess ricotta from cooking for our block party. The tomato and extra spice adds a nice kick to the custard. I'd also like to play with the spice mixture when I make this again. I think you could eliminate the heat and add a bunch of dried or fresh herbs. This could also be made in a pie or quiche crust, but I like the simplicity and ease of cleanup of baking in the skillet. This is also a good recipe to double - bake one in the skillet and put the other filling in a pie shell and freeze.

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350.
    2. 2
      In a large cast iron skillet on medium heat, cook the onions, garlic and salt until they begin to caramelize. Meanwhile, mix the mozzarella, half the Parmesan, the ricotta and the eggs in a mixing bowl.
    3. 3
      To the skillet, add the spinach, sun dried tomatoes, the tomato paste and the spices. Cook until the liquid from the spinach is dried out.
    4. 4
      Add the spinach mixture to the cheese mixture and combine well. Put it back into the skillet, smooth the top and top with the remaining Parmesan.
    5. 5
      Bake for around 40 minutes. The top should be crispy and golden brown.
    6. 6
      Allow 10 minutes rest before cutting and serving.

      This is really good and I like the low-carb aspect of it (since I love quiche but can't have the crust as often as I would like). I liked the "bite" of the chili powder and red pepper flakes. I only made a half recipe and used a smaller pan, and it worked fine. I, too, will experiment next time with different herb combos. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.

      *Absolutely Delicious!* I thought this recipe sounded good, but never thought it would be THIS good! I made it into a pie/quiche and baked for pretty much the same amount of time. Made exactly as written and I would not change a thing. I did have filling left over, but not quite enough for another pie. Maybe the leftovers would be nice baked in a small souffle dish as a side to a nice Italian meal. Thanks so much for sharing, this goes right into my Favorites collection. *Made for Fall PAC 2008*
