Prepare pie crust by spreading the bottom with a thin coat of mustard.
Saute sausage until brown and crumbled and drain well.
Reserve some of the sausage drippings and saute the onions and peppers with garlic until soft. When vegetables are done, top with spinach and cover pan to wilt spinach. When spinach has wilted, stir into vegetables.
Add sausage back to pan and combine.
Put half of the sausage mix into pie crust and top with 1/2 of cheese. Repeat layers.
Beat eggs with cream and season well with salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over filling slowly so it fills all the nooks and crannies. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until middle is set and pie is golden. Let sit for 5 minutes before cutting into wedges. Makes 6-8 servings.
*Note: you can lighten this up by eliminating the pie crust and adding an extra egg
