Layered Mediterranean Pie

I adapted this recipe from a Robin Hood pamphlet 40 years ago. I made it easier and faster by using frozen chopped spinach instead of fresh spinach.

You could use prepared red peppers from a jar or roasted red pepper if you like.
If you use frozen pie crust, sliced ham and sliced mozzarella from your grocery store this recipe goes together very quickly.

With a 9 inch pan you need only 3 eggs. With 9 1/2 or 10 inch pan used 4 eggs.
Can serve hot or room temperature. This pie looks impressive to serve to your family and friends.
