“Another adopted recipe.... While I made this, I made a few changes. Also the directions had a couple of flaws, so I fixed those. The final outcome was gorgeous and delicious. Definitely glad I chose this one. I did use 10 oz of frozen chopped spinach which I wrung dry in cheesecloth, but I think the fresh would be better. Can use pre-made pie crust.”
