Preheat oven 200C

Sauté sliced onion and garlic in a tablespoon of olive oil until softened, add spinach and cook, stirring until tender.

Mix ricotta and eggs in a bowl. Add the spinach and onion mixture, season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Spray a pie dish with oil. Line the pie dish with 1 1/2 sheets of puff pastry. Add the spinach and ricotta mixture and use the remaining puff pastry, cut into strips, to decorate and seal the pie.
