The ingredients needed to make Spinach and ricotta fluffy pie:
  1. Get 1 pack puff pastry (approx. 250g/.5lb or more)
  2. Make ready 400 g (approx. 1lb) fresh baby spinach
  3. Take 1 pack ricotta cheese (.5lb)

Without overpowering it, the Gruyere lends a nice assertive contrast to the more mellow ricotta and the subtle warmth from the nutmeg is balanced nicely by her. Add chopped baby spinach and a generous handful of grated pecorino cheese. A frozen pie shell can be a great thing to have around, especially if there's little time to get dinner and you want something done quickly and done well. Combine ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese in large bowl.

Steps to make Spinach and ricotta fluffy pie:
  1. Preheat the oven for 220°C (430F).
  2. Unwrap the pastry and roll it on a flat surface. If needed, roll it with a rolling pin to match the size of your baking pan. Place the baking paper in your baking pan and cover with the pastry. Pull the edges up a bit - these will form the sides of the pie. Make few holes in the pie with a fork so that the dough is able to breath.
  3. Put the dough in the oven for approximately 15 minutes or until the pastry is goldenish. In case the dough makes bubbles, pierce it with the fork.
  4. While the dough is in the oven, prepare the spinach filling. Thoroughly wash the spinach leaves and let the dry. Cut the onion in the small cubes and sautee it in the pan on a fair amount of olive oil.
  5. Add spinach leaves, cover the pan and leave it for a while until it diminishes in volume.
  6. Once done, turn off the heat.
  7. Mix spinach and ricotta cheese in the bowl. Season with salt, pepper and a pinch of minced nutmeg.
  8. Cut the onions into slices and use the as a base layer on your baked pastry.
  9. Cover the onions with spinach and ricotta. Make two holes and fill them with eggs.
  10. Put back in the oven for another 10 - 15 minutes. I used grill function for this as it cooks the eggs faster. Once the eggs are cooked (or less cooked, if you prefer them being a little bit liquid), take out of the oven and let the pie to cool down for a minute or two. (If you use a grill function, watch the pie thoroughly… I didn't and it burnt on the side a little bit. :-) )
  11. Serve and enjoy your wonderful meal. :-) I served the pie with a delicious pak choi salad - see my another recipe, which is easy peasy.
