Spinach pie??

This is a double crusted one, make your favorite pie crusts (mine's the old 2/3 cup crisco, 2 cups flour, 1 t salt, /4 to `/1 cup cold water)

The filling 1 large onion, minced and sauteed, 2 pkgs frozen spinach 2 cups cotttage cheese 1 eggs 1 cup parmesan (the stuff in a can works fine) pinch nutmeg salt and black pepper (I use not much of the former, because of the parmesan, and lots of the latter, 'cause I love them Black Spots, as my Dad calls them)

make the crusts, pop in the filling and bake for an hour. Great with good white wine.

Then there's Bengali spinach with cream, coconut and almonds, Saag Paneer (spinach and Indian homemade cheese) spinach Gnocchi in tomato cream sauce, . . . . Oh NO, you've gotten me started. Susan
