italian spinach pie (lo-carb)

sherri, a friend from facebook, gave me a link for a yummy looking lo-carb recipe. i decided it would be good for supper because i had some fresh spinach that was beginning to wilt and i wanted to use it up. the recipe called for cottage cheese, but i didn't have any. i did; however, have some ricotta left over from my cheese cake making and decided to use that instead. i also doubled the recommended eggs so i could get more bulk with less carbs. i added some spices as there weren't very many and i'm a spicy kinda gal. anyway, here's the recipe. i must say, it was delicious.

1 cup ricotta cheese
8 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/3 cup paremsean
1 tsp oregano (ground)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup (blanched, drained and chopped) spinach
(1 frozen package would sub just great)

the recipe called for 7 oz roasted red peppers, but didn't have any handly.

blend all ingredients well. put in 9" deep dish pie plate and bake for 40 minutes at 350o F or until center is set. toothpick and/or butter knife test will work.

servings 8: carbs per serving 1.75
carb counts are approximate. if you're not sure, be sure and look'em up.
