Sorry, that's a pretty silly title, ha. Well, as the days get shorter not to mention busier with holiday events, I know I'm going to be relying on quick and easy recipes for our weekly dinners. Last week I made just such a meal. I wanted to make a quiche, like the Crustless Broccoli-Cheddar one that I love, but decided I wanted to use feta instead. To compliment the feta I chose asparagus and white mushrooms. I can't wait to think up the next version.
Crustless Asparagus Mushroom and Feta Quiche

1 lb. asparagus spears, cut into 2" inch pieces
