Spinach and Ricotta Quiche

Quiche is a fun "fancy" dish that is actually pretty easy to make. It's also great to make for company because there is no last minute prep, so you can entertain your guests until it is ready to come out of the oven! I got this recipe for spinach and ricotta quiche from my mom, and made it for our friends Kim and Tom when they came over for dinner.

Spinach and Ricotta Quiche

1 box chopped spinach
1 egg
1 medium onion, chopped & sautéed
2 tbsp butter
1 9-inch frozen pie crust
15 oz. ricotta (I used part skim)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Thaw pie shell for 15 minutes.
3. Pierce bottom and sides of pie shell with a fork.
4. Bake pie shell in oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes until slightly brown.
5. In the meantime, saute onion in 2 tbsp butter.
6. Add onion to thawed, drained spinach, egg, and ricotta and season with salt and pepper and mix to combine.
7. Place filling in pie shell and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Make sure to cover the edge of the crust with foil so it does not burn.
