Crustless Three Cheese and Spinach Pie

spinach-pie

It’s so nice to be home and back in the kitchen after two weeks in D.C. Last night I whipped up this easy spinach pie for dinner. My wise cousin Margie told me recently to “cook with intuition,” which, to me, means that if you feel like a recipe calls for too much or too little of something, don’t be afraid to modify it and make it your own. I almost never follow a recipe exactly, and that’s how I ended up with my version of Skinnytaste’s Easy Crustless Spinach and Feta Pie. It made for a great, light dinner. Enjoy! // susannah

CRUSTLESS THREE CHEESE & SPINACH PIE

A perfect January resolution-keeper, this pie has all the green, creamy goodness of a quiche florentine but with no crust, fewer eggs and less dairy. The combination of spinach, onion and the three cheeses adds flavor and texture to this creamy pie.
