Spinach Parmesan Quiche, Low Calorie

Low Calorie Spinach Parmesan Quiche


1 large, burrito-sized tortilla
¼ c. onion, minced fine
2 cups fresh spinach, torn
3 eggs
3 egg whites
1 c. shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese   (4 ounces)
¼ c. shredded parmesan cheese (2 ounces)
¼ teaspoon salt
Dash ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
Spray a 9-inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.  Place the tortilla in the pie plate, pressing the edges of the tortilla around the sides of the pie plate.  Set aside.
Heat a medium-sized, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.  Coat with cooking spray, and cook the onions 3-4 minutes.  Add the spinach, and cook just until the spinach wilts.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, cheese, milk, salt, and pepper.  Add the spinach mixture.
Pour the egg mixture into the tortilla shell.
Bake 35-40 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the top is golden brown.
