    Girl from India's Note:

    From a Reader's Digest Eat Better Live Better Healthy eating Cookbook (My mum has a cupboard full of RD cookbooks and I love to go through them over and over again sometimes only to look at the pictures). Use fresh and young spinach for this wondeful recipe. Now that I have bought a pie dish I tried this recipe out for a family get together. Superb!

    7. 7
      Drain and chop coarsely.

      Reserve few 4-5 rings of the pepper for garnish and chop the remaining afer deseeding and cook for around 5 mins in some boiling water.

      DELICIOUS, This is do good and easy to make. DH loved it,He said it deserves for than 5 stars. He also said I've been eating for 75 years and I know when something is really good.I followed the recipe using Gold Metal self-rising flour. I didn't use peppers,a personal thing. Also used a 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder,1/2 teaspoon sea salt & 1/4 teaspoon pepper.Thank you Fay for a delicious recipe. Barb

      This was delicious! But I must confess that I was pressed for time so I simplified things by using a pre-made pastry shell. Otherwise, I followed the instructions verbatim - used a red/yellow pepper combo, 1% milk, sea salt & freshly ground pepper. Thanx Fay!
