Spinach and Cheese Quiche

If you'd prefer to use fresh spinach, you'll need about 8 cups of washed trimmed spinach leaves. Cook them in a large saucepan with only the water that clings to them, stirring as needed, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Drain well and finely chop.

Makes 12 servings

One 12-ounce can evaporated skimmed milk

1/3 cup low-fat cottage cheese

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 eggs

3 egg whites

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

One 10-ounce box frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

Plain Pie Crust, baked and cooled

1. Preheat the oven to 425° F. In a medium bowl, whisk the milk, cottage cheese, Parmesan, eggs, egg whites, salt and pepper.

2. Place the pie plate on a jelly-roll pan; spread the spinach over the pie crust, then pour the filling over the spinach. Bake 15 minutes; reduce the oven temperature to 350° F and bake until the filling is set, 20 minutes longer. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

I love trying new recipes, especially when I have started a diet to help me lose weight. The book had some really easy delicious recipes. I have used a new recipe each week for the last 6 weeks and have enjoyed everyone of them. I like how it gives the points for each serving so I do not have to figure it out on my own. I would highly recommend this book for anyone, even those not on the weight watcher's diet.

The book is very easy to follow; every recipe that I have tried to date has been delicious and easy.

GREAT RECIPES!!! I tried at least 7 of the recipes for Easter and everyone "RAVED" about the food. Thank you for making this easy.

I was excited to purchase this cookbook, looking forward to some new recipes since I enjoy the 1999 edition so much. Was very disappointed to find that the majority of the recipes in this cookbook are found in the 1999 edition just recatagorized into different sections. This cookbook is great if you are new to Weight Watchers but if you already have the 1999 edition don't waste the money.

I have found this cookbook to be one of a kind. It list the basic ingredients that are found in many dishes that allow kitchens to be stocked with necessities. Therefore, you will have the basic ingredients on hand to save time and spend little time buying those few fresh items that complete the meal. These basic ingredints are not expensive and will allow for a tasty, home cooked meal in a simple way. Great for the busy cook:)

This cookbook is shear genious. It not only has points values but some are foods that can be eaten if you are on the core plan as well. I also like that in the back there is a section for baking. Especially holiday baking. It is in a nifty binder which allows the book to stay open with you in the kitchen. I recommend it for all who like variety.

I just came home with this new book. I bought it at the store and it was encased in a plastic wrap and so I could not look through before I purchased it. While I think I will be able to use a lot of the recipes in the book, I am very disappointed in the quality. The paper is SO THIN that I feel like the pages will rip and the tabs are also made of paper. I thought the quality would be much nicer.
