    Delicious! I used a regular pie crust instead (baked it before I filled it, fresh basil and less parmesan than called for and the entire family loved it.
    Actually pretty tasty and flavorful. Added sausage to give a bit more substance was very yummy. Similar to a quiche minus all the eggs ; Happy Eating
    I sauted 2 links of italian sausage and a small chopped onion and did not use as much ricotta and eggs.. This makes a complete meal and should make everyone in the family happy.
    I made this with a lb of frozen spinach, cooked and well drained. I alaso seasoned it with some dried minced onion, crushed red pepper and some garlic powder.

    I also realized I had no breadcrumbs, and ended up putting some Stove Top in the food processor!

    Turned out fantastic! I need to stop eating it!
    I am a vegetarian and I like all of the ingredients in this recipe.
    Found this recipe in 2000 and have prepared it many times. It's a great side dish for company but since I enjoy it hot or cold I don't hesitate to make it "just for the two of us", then, I can have it for lunch afterwards.
