Have y'all heard of spinach pie?
The first time I ever heard of it was when I met my husband. His mom made it, he loved it, I thought it was the weirdest thing ever.
I wasn't very adventurous, nor did I know much about food back then. I mean, I didn't even really know what the heck cream cheese was. I have come a very long way!
So, When I tried this "pie" the first time, I thought it was weird, maybe a little good, but I was sure I didn't want to eat it again. I did promise my husband I would make it for him though.
Throughout making this for him, I changed up the recipe and adapted it to be more of something I might would like too, and now I love it!
Makes 1 pie
1 pie shell
1 pack of frozen spinach chopped
1/2 pound of cajun sausage
8oz cream cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
8oz ricotta cheese
Turn oven on 375
Brown sausage in a skillet, if you like it spicy, you can still add some cajun seasoning in it, just taste to adjust flavor
Drain spinach and add it to the sausage, taste again to adjust flavor
Beat eggs and cream cheese
Add the parmesan cheese and ricotta
After the sausage/spinach mix has cooled down, add to cheese mixture and mix.
Add to the pie shell and bake for 35-40 minutes until browned on top
