Ricotta Rustic Pie
A delicious Italian Savory Pie Recipe, made with Ricotta, Spinach and Parmesan Cheese. The Perfect healthy dinner or appetizer.
Main Dish, Side Dish
cooked spinach or swiss chard (must drain really well wring out a small amount at a time in your hands to remove as much moisture as possible)*, I used 1 cup of each
freshly grated parmesan cheese
crust pie dough
Pre-heat oven to 350° (180° celsius). Lightly grease a 7 inch (18 centimeter) pie/cake pan.
Roll out the pie crust and fit to the pie/cake pan, with the leftover dough use cookie cutters to cut out desired shapes, strips or use an extra pie crust to cover the top completely.
In a medium bowl mix together well-drained swiss chard and or spinach (remove as much moisture as possible, nothing worse than a soggy pie)*, ricotta, parmesan cheese and egg.
Add filling to pie crust and cover with cut outs, strips or extra pie crust. Brush the top with a beaten egg or milk. Bake for approximately 30 minutes, let sit for 5 minutes, cut and serve. Enjoy!
