Ingredients

1 pastry pie shell
8 ounces bulk pork sausage
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach

I made this for supper last night for my husband and he loved it. As he would put it, "It's a keeper". I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for putting this on the website.
