Since my SO is on a modified low carb diet and I'm not, I wanted to come up with something Italian that we both would enjoy. And this seemed to fit the bill, please feel free to add or even omit some of the things you would like instead. For this recipe a smoked Italian sausage was used. I want to thank Chef Meg G. for inspiring me to try to make a quiche of my own. :) Submitted to "ZAAR" on June 23,2008.
