Sausage and Pepper Quiche

Quiche is one of those meals that can be made for pretty much any meal, it's not one of those that can only be a breakfast food.  I also love it because it's so versatile and there are tons of flavors that can be combined in a quiche.  There are also many types of dishes it can accompany.

For supper I decided that I wanted to have a quiche.  I had made a pie for something and so I had some leftover crust that I needed to use before it went bad, I thought quiche was the perfect thing to use it up on.  I already had enough sweets around my house so I decided I didn't need to make another pie at the time so quiche was the next thing that came to mind. 

This quiche was very hearty by itself and could be served alone.  I deicded I wanted to make something to accompany it so we would have more than one item for our meal.  Since we were having it for supper I decided to make some balsamic roasted asparagus to go with it; they went together wonderfully. 

I know there are tons of quiche recipes floating around but I got this one from "Big Taste of Little Rock", it's the Junior League of Little Rock's newest cookbook.  Spencer got this for me for a Christmas present.  There are so many things I want to make out of here, but this was the first recipe I've made from it and it didn't let me down.
