Rice, Cheddar, & Spinach Pie

I wasnt in a mood to do anything super complicated this week so this seemed ideal.  Plus, anything combining spinach and cheese is always tasty.

Recipe from Eating Well
Yields 6 servings
340 calories per serving

3 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, diced

10 oz frozen, chopped spinach, thawed
3 c brown rice, cooked
1 c reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
4 large eggs

Preheat oven to 425.
Generously coat a 9 inch pie pan with cooking spray.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add onion  & cook, stirring frequently, until beginning to brown.
Add garlic & spinach & cook for 1 minute.
Transfer to a large bowl & add rice, cheese, pepper, & salt and stir to combine.

Whisk eggs & milk in a separate bowl.
