Rice, Cheddar & Spinach Pie

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/rice_cheddar_spinach_pie.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 2012

This rice, spinach and Cheddar pie is a cinch to prepare—especially if you have leftover cooked rice. If you don’t, follow package directions for 4 servings to get about 3 cups cooked rice. Serve with steamed artichokes with light mayo mixed with lemon for dipping.

6 servings | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Generously coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring frequently, until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and spinach; cook, stirring, 1 minute more. Transfer to a large bowl. Add rice, cheese, pepper and salt to the bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Whisk eggs and milk in a medium bowl. Stir into the spinach-rice mixture. Transfer to the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  4. Bake the pie until lightly browned in spots, about 25 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting into wedges.
