  • 4 oz broccolini, chopped
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 ¼ cup skim milk
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 egg whites
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pie crust

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Sautee broccolini, spinach, and garlic in butter for a few minutes, to lightly wilt spinach. Do not over cook at this stage, as these ingredients will cook further in the oven.
  • Meanwhile, mix milk, mozzarella, mustard, salt, pepper, eggs, and egg whites in a bowl.
  • When the spinach is slightly wilted, transfer sautéed spinach and broccolini mixture to pie crust. Pour in egg and cheese mixture. Top with parmesan cheese and bake 35-40 minutes.
  • Let cool to appropriate temperature before serving.

Enjoy!
