Quiche is a type of cake or tart generally made with ingredients such as cheese, eggs, some type of meat, seafood and also various vegetables. The term is most recognized with the term Quiche Lorrain, named after the Lorraine region of France. This famous dish is an open pie made from cream, eggs and bacon fat.
Fall is almost here, and that means it’s Pie Season.  What better way to celebrate than with a type of Quiche that’s also fairly well-known: Spinach Ricotta Quiche. This recipe was based on one from allrecipes.com.  The directions called for a pre-baked crust, but I cut the prep-time down a bit by just filling and baking the crust all in one step.  It turned out just fine!  Here’s the recipe; some pictures too!  BTW, it was a hit with the fam!!


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 (8 ounces) package fresh spinach
  • ½ (14 ounces) package pastry for 9-inch double-crust pie
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Prepare pastry for a single-crust pie. Press pie pastry into a pie pan and form a decorative crust.
  3. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; add onion and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add spinach and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to wilt, about 1 minute.
  5. Cover the skillet and cook for 1 minute more, allowing condensation to build inside the skillet.
  6. Remove from heat, uncover, and stir.
  7. Combine eggs, ricotta cheese, cream, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, basil, salt, and pepper in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
  8. Spread spinach and onion mixture evenly over the crust.
  9. Pour egg mixture on top.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven until the center of the quiche is set and the top is lightly browned (about 40 minutes).
  11. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving.
