Instead, to make this lower fat, I used 3 eggs, 1/2 cup light sharp cheddar, 1 cup fat free cottage cheese, and a 1/4 cup light parmesan cheese. Thumb Up Helpful (706)Rating: 3 stars I love the base of this recipe but when made as is, it was too thin and stiff from too much spinach. I made it as written the first time and ended up with a very stiff, thin, dry spinach pie.

Sometimes I would vary it a little, using fresh spinach, adding mushrooms or green peppers or an extra egg.
