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.

    Worth the $21.25 even if you're not on the diet

    As a 1600-calorie dieter, I have to crunch all the numbers to make sure I stay on track. Even though it's not a Weight Watchers plan, it gives all the nutritional information I need. Total A+ book.

    GREAT COOKBOOK FOR EVERYONE

    I bought this book when it was first published and I have lost 50 lbs with it. Unfortunately, my dog found the book tasty and chewed it up, but I am definitely replacing it. I thought the points section helpful but not inclusive enough. Also, Weight Watchers could have included activity points information.

    Points to Ponder

    Positive aspect. Each recipe contained the points - very nice. The style of the cookbook is easy for retrieval. Some good recipes found. Not so good.. I would have enjoyed seeing more vegetable recipes in the book. There were not a lot of easy to fix - quick selections.

    Minestrone's really good.

    There were a fair number of steps, but the soup was really good. And the number of points was 'worth it'.
