Spinach and Feta Quiche

I made this for brunch with the in-laws... very good!   From Confident Choices cookbook... my favorite IC cookbook!
2 (10 oz) pkg frozen chopped spinach (thawed)
3 eggs
1 C half & half (may substitute 1 C evaporated skim milk)
1 C crumbled feta cheese
2 T chopped green onions
1/2 t lemon zest, if tolerated
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell or handmade version here 

Pierce bottom of pie shell and bake for 5 minutes at 350.  Cool slightly.  Raise temperature of oven to 400.  Drain spinach and press out all liquid (this can be done easily between layers of paper towels) Set aside.  Whisk eggs and half and half (or milk) in bowl.  Add cheese, green onions, lemon zest, salt, and pepper.  Pour into partially baked pie shell.  Bake on middle rack, 400 for 10 minutes, reducing oven temperature to 350 for the last 25 minutes.
