    Shuzbud's Note:

    The Mediterranean flavours of mozzarella, tomato and basil blend beautifully to make this a flavourful and attractive quiche. You could use an unbaked pie shell rather than dough- this is just how I make it. If your quiche pan is tall, you may like to increase the egg and cream mixture in a ratio of 4 eggs: 1 cup cream.

      I used egg beaters and fat free half and half....I should have layed my tomatoes on paper towels before putting them in pie crust as mine was a little runny...but the taste was superb so I will be making this often...great recipe and easy...

      This was delicious - rich, creamy and very flavorful. From the other reviewers, I decided to add a bit of onion powder, sprinkled over the tomatoes before I layered the cheese. I also added a bit of fresh ground parmesan to the top before baking. It came out really good, crispy on the top and ooey-gooey on the inside, but firm - DH loved it and so did I, he just didn't like the fat content !! I will try this again, cutting down on the cream a bit and maybe trying it with different vegetables like asparagus, artichokes or roasted red peppers. Thanks for posting - this one goes into the keeper cookbook! Made for ZWT7 - Italy, and the HOT PINK LADIES!
