Asparagus Cheddar Quiche

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by silky

Really tasty. If asparagus is out of season, use frozen asparagus or broccoli.

I served this at a family gathering and everyone loved it. Important tips: don't use those standard 9 inch pie crusts - they're way too small. Think deep dish. I used about 1/8 tsp of cayenne pepper and really didn't notice it. Add more for a little zing.
