Spinach and cheese make a great pair. This recipe reminds me of spanakopita, only without the greasy phyllo dough. If you prefer, you can use a different chopped vegetable.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain spinach well, pressing between layers of paper towels.
  2. Combine spinach, onion, cottage cheese, eggs, salt, and pepper.
  3. Spoon into pie shell.
  4. Place the pie shell on a baking pan or something to catch the drippings.
  5. Cover and bake at 350 for until almost set, about 45 minutes.
  6. Arrange the cheese slices on the pie and then put back in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese melts.
  7. Let it cool for at least 10 minutes.
  8. If desired, garnish with tomato slices.

This was delicious! I topped with shredded Swiss Cheese (couldn't find Muenster) and thinly sliced tomatoes on the top during the last 10 minutes. It tasted wonderful! What a nice brunch dish! The tomatoes on the top made it pretty

I was looking for a spinach pie my mom used to make and this came close. It could have been a bit creamier filling and I think she must have added more spices. Next time I'll add some half and half and a bit of nutmeg and hot sauce. It is a pretty, tasty dish that reheats well in the microwave.
