As we get more and more settled in the new house, I’m finding that I keep wanting dinner to be a simpler and simpler affair. I just want to get dinner on the table fast and be done with it.


You can absolutely make this asparagus quiche, crustless. Simply pour it in a pie pan like the one pictured below (so it’s easy to get out of the pan) and bake for about 40 minutes.


I found some whole wheat pie crusts at Whole Foods and stuck them in the freezer some time ago. But I prefer to make them myself because homemade always tasted better to me.
