1 pound mild Italian sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, drained
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2/3 cup ricotta cheese
1 shallot, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package (15 ounces) refrigerated ready-to-roll pie crusts

1. Heat oven to 375F. Place sausage in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook 5 minutes, until browned on all sides.
2. In a large bowl, combine sausage, 5 eggs, spinach, mozzarella cheese, ricotta, shallot, pepper, garlic powder and salt. Line a 9-inch pie plate with 1 of the pie crusts. Spoon in the sausage-and-spinach mixture. Top with the remaining pie crust; seal and crimp edges. Poke a few holes in the center of the pie crust and brush with the egg-water mixture.

NOTE: I USED MORE RICOTTA CHEESE. I JUST MIXED RICOTTA CHEESE IN UNTIL THE MIXTURE WAS AS CREAMY AS I WANTED IT.
