      Asparagus Quiche
      1/2 to 3/4 lb asparagus, trimmed, chopped
      2 tbs butter
      1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
      4 green onions, with green, thinly sliced
      1 small tomato, peeled, seeded, diced
      1 1/2 cups shredded Havarti cheese or Swiss, about 6 ounces
      4 large eggs
      1 1/2 cups half-and-half or whole milk
      1/2 tspsalt
      1/8 tsp ground black pepper
      dash nutmeg (my secret ingredient;->)
      In a saucepan, cover asparagus with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
      In a skillet, heat butter over medium-low heat. Add mushrooms. Saute until mushrooms are tender. Add green onions and cook for 1 minute longer. Set aside.
      Line a 9-inch or 10-inch pie plate with pastry. Bake at 375° for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and reduce oven temperature to 350°.
      Arrange vegetables and shredded cheese in pie pastry. Whisk together the eggs and half-and-half. Add salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Pour egg mixture over the vegetables. Place the filled pie shell on a large cookie sheet or jelly-roll pan. Place in the oven and cook for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serves 6 to 8.
