"This was delicious served with the Tomato Mozzarella Sauté from the same issue. The only change I made was to substitute zucchini for the mushrooms. I found that I had enough of the egg/cream mixture to make a second quiche; but unfortunately only had one pie crust."

"I only changed mixing Swiss and cheddar instead of only Swiss and it was fantastic. My daughter especially likes how light and fluffy it is."

"Modified it a bit. Omited the crust b/c we wanted to have it w/ english muffins. Added 1/2 lb. cooked turkey sausage after the spinach. Used sweet onion instead of red onion. Also did not have fresh rosemary so I used dried and it still worked good! Yummy!"
