Ingredients

  • Dough for single-crust pie
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped yellow summer squash
  • 1/2 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-2/3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°. Line unpricked crust with a double thickness of foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice. Bake on a lower oven rack until edge is light golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Remove foil and weights; bake until bottom is golden brown, 3-6 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack. [Reduce oven setting to 350°.]
  2. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, mushrooms and squash; cook and stir until tender, 3-5 minutes. Add spinach and garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Spoon into crust; top with cheese.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, cream, salt, rosemary and pepper until blended; pour over cheese. Cover edges of crust loosely with foil. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
