Bacon Veggie Quiche

It's fairly easy, but takes a little time to make. Feel free to make ahead of time. Quiche is good cold or warm in my opinion.

Recipes: Bacon Veggie Quiche
1-2 Tbp Olive oil
¼ cup diced red pepper
½ cup chopped broccoli
¼ cup diced red onion
¼ cup chopped yellow squash
¼ cup chopped button mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, minced
5-6 slices bacon
2 roma tomatoes, sliced
Large handful of spinach leaves
½ cup ricotta cheese
½ cup shredded cheese (of your choice)
6 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste
1 sheet refrigerated pie crust
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Unroll crust and place into pie pan. Bake for 10 min at 375. Remove from oven.

Sauté red pepper and broccoli with the oil over medium heat for 3-5 min. Add onion, squash, mushrooms, and garlic. Sauté till al dente. 5-10 min.

While veggies sauté cook bacon, as desired.  In a separate bowl beat eggs with whisk or fork.

Mix in ricotta and shredded cheeses until well combined. Add salt and pepper to egg mixture.

Chop bacon and add to egg mixture. Add veggies to egg mixture.

Pour just enough mixture into the pie pan (with the precooked crust in it) to coat the bottom.
Place a large handful of spinach leaves over the egg mixture in the pie pan to create a layer. Por remaining egg mixture on top of spinach.

Top with sliced tomatoes, arrange as desired.

Cover in foil and back 40 min. Remove foil and bake an additional 20 min.
Serves 6. Serving size 1/6 of pie.
