Another adopted recipe.... While I made this, I made a few changes. Also the directions had a couple of flaws, so I fixed those. The final outcome was gorgeous and delicious. Definitely glad I chose this one. I did use 10 oz of frozen chopped spinach which I wrung dry in cheesecloth, but I think the fresh would be better. Can use pre-made pie crust.

As the stars above say: we liked it, we liked it!! It would have rated more stars, but it wasn't much different from many other spinach pies. Positive criticism: we (husband and I) thought I needed to use more spinach, and it needed a "lift", like maybe a dash of some hot pepper thingy, and I think some nutmeg. Adding raisins were new to me, but quite a revelation, that, like anchovies in some dishes, it added to the taste while not really being identifiable! This is a GOOD recipe, and just need some more inspiration to spark it up a few stars! Thanks, it was really enjoyable. Basically, nothing negative can be said about the recipe.
