I have a very similar recipe made in a pie pan ... I stick a knife in the center (the same as you would to test a pumpkin or custard pie) and when it comes out clean, I know it's cooked properly. I also vary the cheese I use ... feta is good. Also sometimes reduce the egg and add a 1/4 of extra virgin olive oil for a different taste.
Good, but a little bland. Will add some red pepper flakes and garlic powder next time.
The only addition this recipe really needs is a big spoonful of harissa (spicy red pepper paste) mixed into the spinach-cheese base. The harissa provides a huge flavor boost! Other than that, I used lowfat cottage cheese and frozen spinach that was not just drained but squeezed of water - no problems with too much moisture.
