Spinach and Ricotta pie

with 4 comments

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.
