mushroom asparagus quiche

I made this quiche for an event this month and we all loved it.  I had several requests for the recipe so I thought I would quickly share it!

 

Mushroom Asparagus Quiche

Ingredients:

1 prepared pie crust

1 half to 1 pound fresh asparagus, cut into half inch pieces (depending on how much asparagus you want in it)

1 medium onion, finely diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

1/4 cup butter

3 eggs, lightly beaten

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup minced fresh basil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Optional: tomato slices for the top

Directions:

Melt butter in a large skillet.  Cook onions, garlic and mushrooms until onions are soft.  (10 minutes).  Add asparagus and cook two more minutes.

Set aside to cool slightly.

Mix eggs, cheese, basil, salt and pepper.  Add in the veggies and pour into prepared crust.  Add tomatoes on top if using.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 30 minutes.  Let stand five minutes before cutting.

Enjoy!
