Spinach and Ricotta pie

There are one hundred and eleventy gagillion recipes for spinach and ricotta pie. Duyvken recently made a version that I have been valiantly trying to recreate ever since – it was not as spinachy as normal and so so simple. The picture below is a variation on her recipe. I, of course, couldn’t help varying it. I added too much stuff to it and while it was delicious if you want a oozy creamy concoction then follow the basic recipe.

In the picture below there is also 2 shallots, kernels from 1 cob of corn, several sprigs of mint and dill.

    No one in my family (except me, natch) will eat ricotta. All the more reason to run away from home, yes?
