  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 40 mins
  • Total Time: 55 mins




  • 2 Piccola Cucina 8 inch Unsweetened Almond Pie Shells
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil (for sautéing fresh spinach)
  • 283 grams fresh spinach (or approx 250 grams frozen, thawed, drained)
  • ¾ cup scallions, chopped
  • ¾ cup ricotta (or cheese of your choice) optional, if omitting add 2-3 more eggs
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Take frozen raw pie crust out of freezer and bake for 10 minutes in oven until crust is slightly golden. Remove and let cool. If using par-baked pie crust, set aside.
  3. In a large pan, add olive oil and sauté fresh spinach and scallions over medium heat until spinach is wilted (about 6 minutes). If using frozen spinach, defrost in microwave, drain and set aside in bowl with uncooked scallions.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, ricotta and lemon juice, once mixed add spinach and scallions and mix thoroughly.
  5. Divide egg and spinach mixture between the two pie crusts.
  6. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the center is completely set. Let cool 5 minutes before slicing and serving.


This recipe uses two 8 inch pie shells and serves 8. To only make one quiche, halve the recipe.

Pre-baking the raw shells create a sturdier crust that reheats very well.
