Spinach and Spaghetti Squash Quiche Recipe
- 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach , thawed, drained and squeezed dry
- 1/2 cup cooked, shredded spaghetti squash
- 1 beaten egg
- 3 egg whites
- 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated skim milk
- 1 cup part-skim-milk mozzarella cheese
- cooking spray
- 1/3 cup bread crumbs
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
step 2: Pierce squash several times with a fork, and place in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave on high for 10 minutes, turn over, and continue cooking 10 minutes more. Squash flesh should be very tender inside. Set aside to cool.
step 3: Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Shred 1/2 cup of squash and place in a mixing bowl. Stir in egg, egg whites, evaporated milk, mozzarella cheese, and spinach until well combined. Spray a 9 inch pie place or quiche dish with cooking spray. Spread bread crumbs in the bottom and around the sides to coat. Pour egg mixture into prepared dish.
step 4: Bake quiche in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm or at room temperature.
