Dinner ready in 50 minutes! Enjoy this colorful spinach pie sprinkled with cheese.
tablespoons butter or margarine
bag (10 oz) washed fresh spinach, finely chopped
small red bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
tablespoons all-purpose flour
teaspoon ground nutmeg
tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease 9-inch pie plate with shortening. In 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add spinach and bell pepper; cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until spinach is wilted and bell pepper is crisp-tender.
In small bowl, beat remaining ingredients except cheese with wire whisk until smooth. Pour over vegetables in skillet; stir to mix. Pour into pie plate.
Bake uncovered about 30 minutes or until center is set. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve immediately.
This pie is somewhere between a spinach soufflé and crustless quiche. It makes a good main dish for casual entertaining. Serve it with your favorite pasta sauce or cheese sauce and add a salad of fresh orange and red onion slices sprinkled with toasted almonds.
