Lightened Up Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche

This version of quiche is healthier than most, but tastes naughty:) My family had no idea it was a Weight Watchers recipe!

6 oz. pie crust, 9-inch, refrigerated 
2 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1 1/4 cups part-skim ricotta cheese
1 cup low-fat, shredded Cheddar cheese
1 large egg
2 large egg whites
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
10 oz. frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and well-drained
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Press pie crust into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch, removable-bottom tart pan or a 9-inch pie pan; refrigerate until ready to use.

To make filling, heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until soft, about 3 minutes. Transfer onion to a large bowl and add ricotta cheese, cheddar cheese, egg, egg whites, mustard, oregano, salt and pepper; mix well and fold in broccoli. Spoon mixture into prepared crust and level surface with a wooden spoon; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake until a knife inserted near center comes out clean, about 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces. Yields 1 piece per serving.
