Italian Spinach Pie

I was looking for budget friendly healthy recipes and came across this one. To be honest I wasn't sure about the whole cottage thing...but it came out great. It even tasted better the second day after it had time to set and flavors were able to come out. The original recipe seemed a little bland so I added some spices and I think that helps this dish a lot.

Adapted from Kraft


1 container (16 oz.) 2% cottage cheese
1 package (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
4 eggs, lightly beaten
4 ounces roasted red peppers, well drained, chopped
1/3 cup chopped and seeded tomatoes
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Mix all ingredients until well blended. Pour into greased 9-inch pie plate.

Bake 40 minutes or until center is set.
