Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a deep 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat bottom. Cook mushrooms and onion for 3 minutes, or until tender, stirring frequently.

Stir in garlic. Cook for 30 seconds, stirring frequently.

Pour in milk. Heat for 11/2 to 2 minutes, or until hot but not boiling. Remove from heat.

Stir in spinach, rice, egg or substitute, Jarlsberg, Parmesan, nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, breaking up any large clumps of spinach. Carefully pour into pie pan.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted into center of pie comes out clean. Sprinkle with additional hot sauce.
