Zucchini Spinach Pie

I’ve been making this simple dish for years and I recently revamped it. It had been a while since I made it and when I had my first bite this afternoon I remember why it was a staple in my kitchen for years. It is easy to make, super tasty, heats up easily and travels well to potlucks (where it is always a hit). You can add a pie crust if you want for a full-on quiche, but I find the dish is rich enough I don’t miss the crust.
