spinach sausage pieSpinach and Italian sausage are perfect companions in this delicious main course pie!

I made this for the first time a few weeks ago and my husband was very impressed with the hearty, spicy flavor.  And actually, I was too!

If you like Italian flavors, I think you’ll like this!

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 9 oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed to drain
  • 1 egg
  • 1 lb sweet or hot Italian sausage – I used the hot sausage to get the added spice!
  • 8 oz can of tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

4.  Heat oven to 375 degrees.

5.  While your sausage mixture is simmering, prepare the pie crust according to the package directions for an unfilled one-crust pie.  Do not prick the crust.  Bake at 375° for 5 minutes.

6.  Spread the spinach mixture over the bottom of partially baked pie crust.
