Ingredients

  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, drained
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2/3 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (15 ounces) refrigerated ready-to-roll pie crusts
  • 1 egg beaten lightly with 1 tablespoon water

Make It

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Place sausage in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook 5 minutes, until browned on all sides.

2. In a large bowl, combine sausage, 5 eggs, spinach, mozzarella cheese, ricotta, shallot, pepper, garlic powder and salt. Line a 9-inch pie plate with 1 of the pie crusts. Spoon in the sausage-and-spinach mixture. Top with the remaining pie crust; seal and crimp edges. Poke a few holes in the center of the pie crust and brush with the egg-water mixture.

3. Bake at 375 degrees F for 1 hour, 15 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
