Spinach, Zucchini and Mushroom Quiche

I found this delicious recipe, and many of the others I have been trying lately, on http://www.singforyoursupperblog.com/ A GREAT blog and full of easy, filling, healthy recipes. Today, I tried a recipe for Quiche and it turned out absolutely delicious!! The recipe does call for only using 1 9inch pie crust, but I opted for 2 and added some extra vegetables.

Spinach, Zucchini and Mushroom Quiche
1 9-inch pie crust, unbaked (store-bought works just fine here!)
7 large eggs
3/4 cup half and half
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 medium zucchini, cut in half and sliced into pieces
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 small box frozen spinach, thawed and drained of all water
1 small can mushrooms (fresh would be even better)
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Press the pie crust into a quiche pan or a pie plate. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the half and half; stir in the salt, black pepper, white pepper and cheese. Add in the vegetables and stir to combine. Pour into the prepared pie crust and bake for 35-55 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a knife inserted comes out clean. It shouldn’t be too jiggly when you pull it out. Let sit for 5 minutes before cutting.
