Kitty's Spinach Quiche

Katrina Freed Recipe

By Katrina Freed Kat19702

This is the best spinach quiche I have ever had. I usually make my own crust, but if you want a faster, easier quiche I am sure a purchased pastry shell will do the job.

This is incredibly good even warmed in the microwave as leftovers.
