Very good--even with canned asparagus (yuck!), we loved every bite. I did not use bell pepper because I don't like it, and I adjusted the ingredients to make about half. It was plenty for my h...

This recipe is so good. I decided to put the ingredients into a pie shell for a quiche. Definately had to reduce the ingredients but turned out very well. I can't wait to make it again!
