Zucchini and grated cheese quiche (quiche de zpallitos italianos y queso parmesano)









Quiche is a savoury,open faced pastry crust with a filling of savoury custard with cheese, seafood and /or vegetables.

Quiche can be served hot or cold.It is part of french cuisine but is really popular in other counties, especially as party food-

Recipes for custards baked in pastry containing meat, fish or fruits are referred  in the 14th century and in 15th century cookbooks as well.

My favorites are with veggies and cheese, but I love too with seafood or chicken.

1 teaspoon of Provence herbs( is a mix of thyme,oregano,basil and rosemary)
