Italian Spinach Pie
Monday, September 3, 2007 | Time: 5:30 AM



Beautiful, super tasty spinach pie made with italian sausage and cheese! Super easy to toss together a few pre-frozen ingredients and bake, or if you've got more time of course you can use fresh ingredients. Great as a main dish or along with ravioli/pasta and garlic bread. I served this up with some very complimentary (pre frozen) portebello mushroom ravioli, and nice piping hot toasted garlic bread. Unfortunatly, it was already half-eaten before I got the chance to take a picture! :) This is just a gorgeous pie, rustic, flaky brown crust - that egg wash really does the trick, dont leave that one out!!


Ingredients:

  • 0 .750 to 1 lb. Italian sweet sausage (i used ground, but you can use links if you cut them up)
  • 3 eggs (1 yolk used to glaze)
  • 1/2 lb. Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 lb. cottage cheese
  • 1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen chopped spinach
  • 1/8 tsp. salt, pepper & garlic salt
  • 2 pie crusts
  • 9 inch pie dish
Directions:
Skin the sausage and brown, breaking sausage into small pieces. Reserve one yolk. In a bowl, add sausage, cottage cheese, grated Mozzarella cheese, spices and thawed spinach, (very well drained) and balance of eggs. Mix well. Add mixture to one pie crust. Cover with 2nd crust, cutting slits for steam to escape. Mix yolk with 1 tablespoon of water. Brush on crust. Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes at 375 degrees. Cool 15 minutes before cutting. Pie freezes well, best eaten hot but can be served cold.
