Instructions:

  1. The first thing we want to do is get our quiche crust ready to accept all our ingredients. Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake pie crust for 5 minutes; remove to a cooling rack. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F so that it will be ready for our spinach ricotta quiche when we've got it ready to bake..
