I use fat-free evaporated milk instead of cream to reduce fat and 2 eggs and 3 egg whites to reduce cholesterol. It's still really good!

  7. Spread spinach evenly over bottom of baked pie crust: pour cheese mixture on top of spinach.

  9. Reduce oven temperature to 350 F.
  10. Bake about 20 minutes longer; until knife inserted into center comes out clean.
