I made this last night. I LOVE Spinach Pie, but I now eat low-carb, so I was looking for a crustless recipe. It turned out flavorful, but also too dry! I may have been overzealous in squeezing out my spinach! I was so afraid of it turning out watery, so I used paper towels and pretty much squeezed it to death. Maybe I should try it again without so much enthusiasm. The flavor was great. My kids all loved it and my husband had 3 helpings. I added extra grated Parmesan on top to create a sort of "crust" as suggested in one of the comments, but it didn't really turn out crunchy. I'll probably skip that step next time (and there *will* be a next time, because this recipe is worth working with). I think to expect this to taste like a spinach pie filling while not trying to recreate the taste of a flaky crust will bring the most success. A flaky pie crust is just never going to happen with low-carb cooking, unfortunately. I give it 4 stars because the flavor was great, but it was too dry--but that may have been due to my overzealous squeezing!
