If you like quiche at all, you MUST try this recipe! This has a superb combination of fresh, lovely flavors! It goes together so quickly if you precook your veggies. I roasted the asparagus with olive oil, salt and pepper the night before (sorry, Rita, I didn't read that I needed whole spears, so I cut them first so mine is not so lovely as yours...ah, well), as well as caramelizing the onion with a bit of balsamic and sauteeing the onion. I added a bit of dijon to the egg mixture and used fresh basil, parsley, chive and thyme for the italian seasoning. I baked in an 8 in springform so it took more like 50 minutes. Phenomenal!
