Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Cook the spinach. Drain thoroughly and

warm through. Remove from heat.
In mixing bowl, mix together ricotta cheese and vegetables. Add grated

taste with nutmeg, salt and white pepper.
Grease quiche pan with just enough olive oil to coat. Pour in mixture

knife inserted in center comes out clean.

recipe somewhat from the published version to make it less stringy
