A great pie to add silverbeet to your diet. Even my children enjoy this open pie. You can use pre-made pie crusts or frozen shortcrust pastry sheets as the pie shell. It even turns out OK without a pie shell at all! I've made this pie gluten-free by using ChristinaCeline's Pastry Recipe for Pie Crust - Gluten Free as the pie crust and you dot need to grease the pie dish or cook the pastry shell before filling. I use light ricotta cheese and light cheddar in my pie to reduce the fat content- you can use the full versions if you wish. You can also add in some cooked diced bacon or ham pieces with the silverbeet if desired or add in some sliced chillies if you like some heat in your pie. My youngest daughter has now renamed this pie " Grass Pie" :)
