Nothing says Mother’s Day like a quiche. The buttery crust and fresh fillings—in this case, spring favorites asparagus, mushrooms and onion—show Mom how much you care. But don’t be intimidated: A super-easy refrigerated pastry makes this recipe a cinch to put together. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
Meet the Cook: The day I first made this, we'd invited a neighbor - a bachelor farmer - over, and I wanted to fix something hearty. It was a hit instantly. These days, our three sons (17, 16 and 13) enjoy it as a change from regular mashed potatoes. We've found that it's best served with beef...either with or without gravy.

“My husband and I love this pizza, which makes a quick, hearty meal for us on busy work nights,” writes Connie Clegg of Frederick, Maryland. “We are eating more vegetarian meals now, and this certainly fits the bill! I buy the packaged baby spinach and use the remaining spinach in a warm spinach salad later in the week.”
Make your next brunch special with this fluffy, deep-dish quiche. Fresh rosemary enhances this delightful egg dish that's chock-full of savory garden ingredients. It cuts nicely, too.
“I created this fast-to-fix recipe to use up excess zucchini from our garden, and at the same time, serve a pasta dish that was lower in calories,” relates Jan Clark of New Florence, Missouri about her prize-winning recipe.
“I came up with this recipe one evening when I didn’t have enough time to make pasta primavera,” recalls Caroline Sperry in Shelby Township, Michigan. “It’s a hearty veggie dish…and so savory and fun to toss around in a skillet!”
