The fluffy texture of this quiche practically melts in your mouth! The green asparagus and red tomatoes on top make this a natural for the holidays. —Sheryl Long, Lincolnton, North Carolina
- 1/2 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and halved lengthwise
- 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
- 1 cup (8 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
