I made this recipe last night and was so surprised and pleased with how it turned out. My husband and I loved it as much as my full-fat quiche recipe. Served with fruit or a healthy, green salad, you have a complete meal. I don't use WW Points, but if you do, it has a Points Plus Value of 5. Original recipe called for 2 large eggs and 3 large egg whites, but I tested with 4 eggs and had perfect results. Placing recipe here for safe keeping. =)

  • 2Whisk together evaporated milk, cottage cheese, Parmesan, eggs, onion powder, salt and pepper until well combined.
  • 3Spread spinach evenly over bottom of pie shell. Place pie pan on foil-lined cookie sheet.
