A delicious Spinach and Sweet Peppers Pie is meant to be eaten with friends and family you enjoy being with. Colors! Colors! Colors! I saw that during the weekend, preparing my spinach and sweet peppers pie. I started making a regular spinach pie, and the weather was so gorgeous outside that I asked myself, why not celebrate the colors that are soon to be upon us? And what better way to do that than with a handful of colorful mini sweet peppers?

I love Spring! It brings me joy. It brings a feeling of accomplishment, a feeling of adventure. The feeling is in the form of a note reminding us that we survived winter and beautiful days filled with the sun’s warmth are soon to arrive. We are so spoiled by Mother Nature that sometimes we don’t even realize it.

My Spinach and Sweet Peppers Pie started as a regular Spinach pie that looked a bit sorry looking until I said to myself, Gemma, let’s be innovative again. I have made this pie numerous times with and without peppers and other vegetables. I consider myself a pro at pie-making with the store-bought pie shell. LOL… You thought I was about to say something else that would be relevant, right? Nope! 🙂 And I am certainly not ashamed to say. Yes, I buy ready-made pie shells at the supermarket. It feels good to say it. I think you know what I mean.

When you are in a hurry or not in the mood to make a pie dough that would probably take 30 to 1 hour to make, why not cheat? My God! WOW! Two days in a row, I said that I had cheated. I guess it is time for a confession! And since it is Lent season, I need to attend church and repent.

Seriously, this recipe reminds me how simplicity is a supreme virtue that needs to be cherished. Baking or cooking should be effortless and tasteful. Spinach, sweet peppers, heavy cream, cheese, eggs, salt, pepper, and a dash of nutmeg are all you need. Everything is available either in your pantry or refrigerator. No excuse not to be able to cook or bake.

A pinch or dash of nutmeg does wonder for this pie filling. It helps bring out the flavors of the cheese that surround the slight bitterness of the spinach. The sweet peppers absorb that flavor and create a distinctive taste that only brings a smile to my face.
