Here’s another recipe that I thought up at the last-minute last night. I don’t know about you guys but those meals that you come up with because you’re pressed for time or maybe there isn’t a lot of ingredients to work with are usually the best meals. This Savory Three-Cheese Spinach Quiche was a winner last night and hopefully you guys will enjoy it as well. Recipe is as follows:
2 frozen ready-made deep dish pie crusts (thawed)
1 med. red Onion (chopped)
1 red bell pepper (chopped)
1 green bell pepper (chopped)
1 yellow bell pepper (chopped)
6 cloves garlic (minced)
1 pkg. fresh baby spinach leaves
1 5oz. container feta cheese
3 cups shredded cheddar
1 dry pint cherry tomatoes (halved)
1 cup of milk
4 eggs (beaten)
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. oregano
3 tbsp. parsley
1 tbsp. olive oil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and allow the pie crusts to thaw while chopping the vegetables.
In a medium skillet heat olive oil on stove top at mid-high heat. Once the oil is ready saute the onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes or just until onions are slightly translucent. Next add in the chopped bell peppers and cook for another 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in entire package of baby spinach and stir until leaves have completely wilted. Lastly, add in the cherry tomatoes and season with 1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. black pepper. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, fill pie crusts with vegetable mixture.
In a medium bowl, beat 4 eggs. Add in the milk and season with remaining salt and black pepper,2 tbsp. parsley and oregano. Mix well then pour egg mixture over the vegetable mixture.
Sprinkle the grated parmesan cheese evenly over both pies followed by the feta cheese. Next sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese evenly over both pies and top it off with the last tablespoon of parsley.
Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 30 minutes. If you like the cheese browned a little bit more, bake for an additional 5 minutes.
Allow the pie to set 8 to 10 minutes before serving.
I hope you guys will enjoy this dish as much as my family and I did. Be sure to comment below and tell me what you thought of this awesome Quiche. Hope to hear from you soon!
