Ingredients

  • 6

    oz pie crust, 9-inch, refrigerated

  • 2

    tsp olive oil

  • 1/2

    cup(s) (sliced) uncooked red onion(s), chopped

  • 1 1/4

    cup(s) part-skim ricotta cheese

  • 1

    cup(s) low-fat, shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1

    large egg(s)

  • 2

    large egg white(s)

  • 1

    Tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 1

    tsp dried oregano

  • 1/2

    tsp table salt, or more to taste

  • 1/4

    tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or more to taste

  • 10

    oz frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and well-drained

  • 1

    Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Press pie crust into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch, removable-bottom tart pan or a 9-inch pie pan; refrigerate until ready to use. To make filling, heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until soft, about 3 minutes. Transfer onion to a large bowl and add ricotta cheese, cheddar cheese, egg, egg whites, mustard, oregano, salt and pepper; mix well and fold in broccoli. Spoon mixture into prepared crust and level surface with a wooden spoon; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake until a knife inserted near center comes out clean, about 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces. Yields 1 piece per serving. Notes Not a broccoli fan? Substitute spinach in its place.
