This is pretty good. Most went back for 2nds and 3rds. Personally next time I make it I'll "season" it more. I only used 3 eggs (all I had), and I still thought it was if you are watching FAT, etc... that is an option.

This is a very nice pie. I made roughly half and put it in a deep dish pie plate. I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese and didn't have quite enough feta, so I added in some goat cheese. My husband thought the cayenne made it a bit sharp, but I liked the mix of seasonings. Thanks for sharing.
