For one pie you will need:
1 lb. Italian sausage, cooked (I used one lb for two pies and no one was the wiser)
6 eggs (I leave them out due to allergies and have no problem so they aren't a necessity)
2 packages (10oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 lb shredded mozzarella
2/3 cup ricotta or cottage cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp garlic powder
two pie crusts
marinara sauce (I use my pizza sauce recipe)
First mix the sausage, eggs, spinach, cheeses, salt, and garlic together, blending well.
Roll out one pie crust to fit your pie plate.
Place the rolled out dough in the pie plate and fill with the topping.
Cover with a second rolled out pie crust.
When you are ready to eat them bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour. Let it sit for 10 minutes before serving. You can make 8-10 servings.
We like it with a spoon of warmed marinara or pizza sauce on the top.
If you want to freeze them first, wrap well in plastic wrap and a top layer of foil.
In the past, before we had kids, I would bake one of these up and freeze the individual pieces wrapped up in saran wrap for Nathan's lunch. It made an easy grab-n-go meal for the nights when we didn't have left overs for him to take.
Let me know if you try this one out. Enjoy!
