Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; add onion and cook for 1 minute. Add spinach and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to wilt, about 1 minute. Cover skillet and cook for 1 minute more, allowing condensation to build inside the skillet. Remove from heat, uncover, and stir.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Press pie pastry into a 9 1/2-inch deep-dish pie pan. Prick bottom and sides with a fork.

  • Bake crust in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

  • Combine eggs, ricotta cheese, cream, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, basil, salt, and pepper in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.

  • Spread spinach and onion mixture evenly over the crust. Pour egg mixture on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until center of quiche is set and the top is lightly browned, about 40 minutes. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Just had this for lunch today and have to say that this quiche has great texture and flavor. Except for adding around 1/3 C. of Mexican Cheese Blend and more basil than it calls for, I made this to recipe. Will be warming the leftovers for breakfast in the morning. My hubby, who isn't a big quiche fan, thought it was good! Thanks Kim's Cooking Now for a tasty recipe!! Read More

spinach layered on bottom didn't really allow egg and cheese to mix in so quiche ended up like a layered pie. Flavor not that great. Read More

Great recipe. The only adjustment I made was to sprinkle mozzi cheese over the crust before baking to seal it. Keeps the crust from getting soggy. Instead of putting the cheese on the crust before you bake you can sprinkle the cheese over the baked crust before you put the filling in. Read More

Didn't follow recipe exactly because I didn't have all the ingredients (substituted yellow onion for the red had only Parmesan cheese and didn't have the full amount). Quiche came out fine and was delicious anyway. Read More

Very tasty! I added feta cheese to the mix to give it a greekish taste. Yum! It was slightly moist in the bottom, so I may try the suggestion of putting mozzarella cheese over the pie crust to help maintain crispness. Read More
