We love this one!
2 9" pie crusts (I actually just use a bottom crust)
1 lb bulk pork sausage
1 onion chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 T flour
1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 cup frozen broccoli, thawed (I leave this out)
1/8 t pepper
8 oz ricotta cheese
3 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1 cup grated parmesean
1 T milk
1. Preheat 375. Line pie pan with 1 crust. In heavy skillet cook sausage with onion and garlic till thoroughly cooked. Drain excess fat, then sprinkle with flour. remove from heat and let cool.
2. Drain spinach and broccoli. In large bowl beat eggs, pepper, ricotta and cream cheese until well mixed. Add vegetables, then pork mixture, mozzarella and parmesean and mix well.
3. Pour into pie crust lined pan. Top with remaining crust (I skip this part), seal and flute edges. Cut vent holes in top of crust. Brush with milk. Bake 375 for 50 - 65 minutes.
Can be cooled, and frozen. To reheat, thaw overnight in refrigerator; then bake 375 for 20 - 25 min.
