Crustless Spinach and Cheese Quiche

I love this dish for a really nice lunch with a little side salad and a glass of white wine!

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2/3 cup diced onions
  • 3 to 4 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon regular Spike seasoning
  • 1/2 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup low fat ricotta cheese
  • 2 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet. Add onions to hot oil and sauté for 3 minutes.
  3. Add spinach and garlic and sauté for another 2 minutes, or until spinach is completely wilted. Remove from heat.
