Greens and Ricotta Pie

Submitted by: KIERAE


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 lg head Swiss chard (or other greens) about 1&3/4 pounds
    1 Tablespoon olive oil
    1 bunch green onions, sliced 1/4 inch thick
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
    4 large eggs
    1 container (15 oz) part skim ricotta cheese
    3/4 cup non fat milk
    1/2 cup grated parmesean cheese
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    1 cup thinly sliced mushrooms

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 9&1/2-inch deep dish glass pie plate. Trim off two inches from swiss chard stems, discard ends. Separate stems from leaves, thinly slice stems and coarsly chop leaves.

In nonstick 12-inch skillet, heat oil until hot. Add sliced stems and mushrooms and cook 4 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add green onions, salt, and pepper and cook 1 min. Gradually add chopped leaves until wilted and excess moisture evaporates, about 5 min. In a large bowl, with wire whisk or fork, mix eggs, ricotta, milk, parmesean and cornstarch. Stir in swill-chard mixture.

Transfer mixture to pie plate. Bake pie 40 minutes or until knife inserted 2 inches from center comes out clean. 6 main dish servings.
