      Loved it. Nice, creamy quiche texture, rather than a lot of the "eggy" recipes I've tried. Comes out loaded with asparagus too. I also baked a little longer than called for.

      This recipe is absolutly wonderful. We loved it. Fresh fruit on the side completed the meal. I did use a large high sided pie plate. I did have to bake it about 10 minutes longer. Followed the recipe with no other changes. Will be making this dish again very soon. Thanks for sharing.
