    This was fabulous! I'm not the biggest lover of asparagus, but my fiancé loves it, so I made this primarily for him. I loved it too though!! It's really easy to make and delicious!

    This was fabulous! I used the recipe more as a guideline, because I a) was too lazy to make a crust, and b) didn't have all the ingredients. I used fresh basil, plus fresh dill, and a prepared crust. I used ham instead of bacon, and green onions instead of white. But what I ended up with was amazing! I had some leftover and made mini crustless quiche in a muffin pan, which will be a yummy breakfast in the morning.
