Prepare pie crust or take your bought pie crust out of the refrigerator and follow the directions on the box for preparing. The one I have used is Immaculate brand and it says to let it get to room temperature for 25-30 minutes before unrolling into the pie dish.
Heat oil in a small pan
Cook the chopped onion and garlic for about 10 minutes until onions are translucent.
In a small bowl, add the spinach (be sure to squeeze all the water out), balsamic, oregano, cottage cheese, feta cheese, egg whites, and pepper.
Add the onions and garlic after soft and mix together evenly.
Spoon into pie crust
Cook for 20-25 minutes. Cover the crust foil or crust shield to keep from getting too brown.
Use ricotta instead of cottage cheeseAdd diced mushrooms if preferredAdd diced cooked bacon if desiredUse a gluten free crust if needed.
