Crust
1/2
cup all-purpose flour
1/2
cup whole wheat flour
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
cup butter or margarine
3
to 4 tablespoons cold water
Filling
1/2
cup shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
1
tablespoon all-purpose flour
4
eggs, slightly beaten
1 1/2
cups milk
1/2
teaspoon salt
1
cup firmly packed fresh spinach leaves, coarsely chopped
1
small red bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, mix 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, the whole wheat flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like small crumbs. Sprinkle with water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork just until flour is moistened. Shape into ball; flatten slightly.
  2. On floured surface, roll dough into 12-inch round. Fold dough into fourths; place in 9-inch glass pie plate. Unfold and ease into pie plate, pressing firmly against bottom and side; crimp edge. Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1 inch from rim of pie plate. Fold and roll pastry under, even with plate; flute.
  3. In large bowl, mix cheese and 1 tablespoon flour. Stir in eggs, milk and 1/2 teaspoon salt until well blended. Stir in spinach and bell pepper. Pour into pie crust.
  4. Bake 15 minutes. Cover edge of crust with strip of foil to keep crust from overbrowning. Bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
