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.
It is similar to the Best of Bridge Mediterranean Pie but it is a better size for small families.
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.
This pie looks impressive to serve to your family and friends.
