Crustless Couscous and Spinach Quiche

This "quiche" is so simple to make - you can prepare everything the night before, assemble it in the morning, and have it ready to go soon after waking up. An ideal dish to serve company, too.

Crustless Couscous and Spinach Quiche
The Garden of Earthly Delights

1 1/2 c water
3/4 c couscous, uncooked
3 eggs, beaten
1 bunch spinach
3/4 c cottage cheese
2 c cheddar cheese, shredded
3 T salsa
1 tsp chile powder
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp oregano, dried
1/2 tsp coarse salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 375. Lightly coat a 9" pie plate with vegetable oil and set aside.

In a medium pot, bring water to a boil. Add couscous. Stir once, cover, and remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Transfer couscous to a large bowl and add remaining ingredients.

Spread couscous evenly in the bottom of the pie plate. Placein oven and bake until a knife comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

Remove quiche from oven and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
