Here is an amazing recipe for quiche that Masha came up with years ago. It is easy to alter with your favorite veggies acording to the seasons, and always impressive to serve! Many people get stressed about making a pie crust, but here is Mashas secret: buy it premade. Yes! This lets you focus on the fun part, assembling the veggies! Let's get started!

2 premade frozen pie crusts
6-8 fresh eggs room temperature
1 cup fresh parsley chopped (and a few leaves set aside to garnish)
1 pint heavy whipping cream
3 cups fresh spinich
16 ounces of grated SHARP Cheddar cheese (Montery Jack can be used as a substitute)
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices of cooked and crumbled bacon
1 zuccini sliced thin
1 small onion chopped finely
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 green onions chopped
Saute onions and garlic. Arrange spinich on bottom of crusts. Top with garlic and onion mixture, then the sliced zuccini and parsley, and last, the bacon. Sprinkle cheese over the vegetable mixture, and top with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and cream together until smooth. Pour egg mixture over the cheese. Now arrange the parsley leaves on top. You could also add thinly sliced tomatoes. Bake in a preheated oven at 350* for 1 hour. During cooking you may need to cover the pie crust edges with foil to keep them from over cooking. Let cool on a wire rack. Slice and serve.
