2 ready-made pie crusts
1/2 jar Jeff’s Naturals Marinated Artichoke Hearts
1/2 jar Jeff’s Naturals Roasted Bell Pepper Strips
8 large eggs
1 shallot, grated
2 Tbsp. crushed garlic
1/2 c. whole milk

3 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 c. Mozzarella cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake pie crusts for 12 minutes.
Chop artichoke hearts and brown lightly in a pan on medium heat for 5-7 minutes. Set aside to cool. Cut roasted red bell peppers into ¼ inch by 1 inch long slices. Set aside.
Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Add shallot, garlic, milk, Mascarpone, Fontina, salt and pepper. Add spinach and artichokes. Mix well.
Pour mixture carefully into pie pans. Sprinkle red peppers into mixture, then top with Mozzarella cheese.
Bake for 55 minutes. Center will seem slightly underdone, but will continue cooking as it cools. Cool quiche for 20 minutes before serving.
Time Saving Tip: Make the evening before and warm it up the next morning for a delicious and lovely Mother’s Day surprise! When you are ready to re-heat the quiche, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Place the quiche in the oven for about 15 -20 minutes or until the center is warmed through.
