  • 1 frozen deep-dish pie crust (9 inches)
  • 1/2 pound Italian turkey sausage links, casings removed
  • 1 cup egg substitute
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2/3 cup reduced-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Line unpricked crust with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake for 4 minutes. Remove foil; bake 4 minutes longer. Remove from the oven; reduce heat to 375°.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. In a large bowl, whisk the egg substitute, spinach, cheeses, pepper and cooked sausage. Pour into crust. Place pie on a baking sheet. Cover edge loosely with foil.
  3. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 40-45 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
