    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is really nice for a healthy, meatless meal. Use whatever crust you'd like....homemade or store-bought. I usually serve a salad or soup with this quiche.

      We enjoyed this quiche and I'll make again. I used my 2-pc 10-inch tart pan with a Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust, and it made a beautiful quiche, with just the right amount of filling. I substituted fat-free cream for the milk, added salt, and increased the tarragon for a bit more flavor. The creamy ricotta cheese give the quiche a nice mild flavor and texture, blending well with the spinach.

      Sorry but even though we were hungry, this was flavourless & inedible. I read all the reviews & added 1 extra egg, baked at 350 F. for 1 hour, which made it set nicely. I loosely covered the crust (without pricking), using a double layer of thick foil. I then pre-baked the crust on the lowest rack at 450 F. for 8 minutes, scrunched foil around edges & baked another 5 minutes before filling, which made a perfectly flaky crust. I added 1 tsp. salt (should have been 1 & 1/2 tsp.) & used 1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper in filling. I substituted fresh spinach for 1/2 of a 10oz. package of frozen spinach (defrosted & squeezed). I also substituted yellow onion which is stronger than green onion & increased the amount to 1/2 cup. I followed the rest of the recipe as written. We love spinach but even with my additions, this was way too much spinach for so little spice & such a bland cheese. As others mentioned, I also had enough filling leftover for another 9" deep dish pie shell. Next time, I will try increasing spices, add swiss cheese, sauteed mushrooms & decrease spinach.

      I skipped the spinach and mushrooms, added an extra egg and then made two pies, one with imitation crabmeat and one with ground beef. This was so good! I loved the ricotta!
