This is a dish for the spinach lover. Great the next day also. I look forward to making it every spring when spinach is in season.

Very easy to make and I find it delicious although I did change the recipe a little. I sauted diced ham and onion with some garlic then added it into the mixture. I didn't have enough spinach or ricotta cheese so I added two more eggs. Then I topped off the pie with green onion and some cheddar cheese. It tasted great. Will definitely use this recipe again.

I decided to try out this recipe when I needed to use up a large amount of fresh spinach. It was a good choice! Both my husband and I really enjoyed it. Here are the changes I made: I added 1 tablespoon of onion powder and some minced garlic. I shredded one cup of sharp cheddar cheese and used this as a topping. Broiling the pie for the last five minutes ensured that I had good browning of the cheese. I think the sharp cheddar cheese and the onion powder made all the difference! Read More

I've never made quiche before and this was great to cut my teeth on. The only thing I regret is following other recommendations to add garlic. For me the peppers and onions made a sweet and delicious addition. The garlic was a completely dissonent note Read More

This was delicious and it could not have been easier! I did use frozen spinach (squeezed) and added some chopped green onions (just trying to get rid of them but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Some people mentioned that it was bland maybe I was just generous with the spinach but I did not find it to be so and that is usually my first complaint. I also almost always add garlic but I resisted this once and I'm so glad I did! mmmm spinach! Read More

I tried this recipe once and loved it so much I layered it in between noodles and tomato sauce for a really good spinach lasagna. It was a great vegetarian alternative to turkey and my Thanksgiving guests loved it! Read More

Added at least 1tsp paprika 1/2 jalapeno full cup (not just 1/2 cup) red pepper and about 1/4 cup onion. Excellent flavor but took about 2x the time to cook (about 1.5 hrs) @ 350 degrees. Read More
