Spinach Quiche

It's cold and snowy outside and I wanted to make something warm for my husband who was out in the storm all day. They say real men don't eat quiche, but my real man really liked this:

Spinach Quiche

6 oz. Refrigerated pie crust
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup sliced red onion
1 1/4 c. part-skim ricotta
1 cup low fat cheddar
1 large egg
2 large egg whites
1 TBL Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp pepper
10 oz frozen spinach (chopped, thawed and well-drained)
1 TBL grated Parmesan

Preheat oven to 375
Press crust into 9-inch pie plate
Heat oil in a small skillet and saute onion until soft.
In a bowl, mix onion, cheeses, eggs and seasonings. Fold in the spinach. Spoon into the crust and sprinkle with Parmesan.
Bake 40 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing into 6-8 servings.
