  1. Spinach , Swiss Quiche


    • 1 refrigerated pie pastry
    • 4 turkey bacon strips, diced
    • 1/4 cup chopped onion
    • 1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
    • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
    • 2 cups egg substitute
    • 1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese
    • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Swiss cheese
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
    • 1/4 teaspoon each salt, pepper and paprika
    • 6 tablespoons fat-free sour cream

    • On a lightly floured surface, unroll pastry. Transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate; flute edges. Line unpricked pastry with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil.
    • Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce heat to 350°.
    • In a small skillet, cook the bacon, onion and red pepper until vegetables are tender; drain. Stir in spinach. Spoon spinach mixture into pastry.
    • In a small bowl, combine the egg substitute, cottage cheese, Swiss cheese and seasonings; pour over spinach mixture.
    • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
    • Serve with sour cream. Yield: 6 servings.
