Crustless Mushroom-Spinach Quiche Recipe

Crustless Mushroom-Spinach Quiche Recipe

"My aunt gave me this wonderful recipe, and I adapted it a bit," writes Mary Ann Dell from Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. "It's a tasty vegetarian dish that's easy to prepare and full of nutritious vegetables." Because it doesn't have a crust, it's just right for low-carb diets.
