DIRECTIONS

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese, 1 cup shredded mozzerella and 3 eggs. Mix well!
  • Stir in chopped spinach, onion, tomato, salt, spices and fresh basil.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella into one 9" pie crust, then fill with cheese/spinach/egg, etc. mixture. There may be some left over -- do not overfill!
  • Top with remaining 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella.
  • Give yourself a pat on the back -- you're doing okay!
  • Carefully place remaining (thawed and flattened) frozen pie crust on top and pinch edges with a fork. Remember to cut a few slits in the top crust or your pie will explode!
  • Place on the middle rack of your nicely pre-heated oven and let it hang out for about 30 minutes. When the half-hour is up, pull the little guy out and brush egg white on the top surface (this will not only make your pie nice and shiny, but also very happy).
  • Pop back in the oven for 10-15 minutes until the top is a nice golden brown.
  • Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
  • Enjoy!
  • note: This recipe happens to be vegetarian, but I'm certain it would be delicious with some sausage in the mix. Feel free to experiment!
