Spinach, mushroom and ricotta quiche


Originally this recipe was supposed to be spinach ricotta cannelloni. Everything was fine until I realized I was out of pasta! Having absolutely no intention of running out in the cold to the grocery store, I found an alternative. And that’s how this pie came to be on our table. Simple and effective!

For the preparation of the fillings

  • In a bowl, soften the ricotta (if necessary add a little milk).
  • Add the 2 crushed garlic cloves and the Parmesan cheese.
  • Add the mushrooms, spinach, salt and pepper. Mix well.

For the assembly
