Pepperoni Spinach Quiche

Pepperoni Spinach QuicheThis recipe from Taste of Home was quick and delicious. We even gave in to the kids requests and let them have the leftovers for lunch the next day where they were the envy of the cafeteria. I made a pie crust from scratch rather than use the canned crescent rolls–doesn’t take that long. We also upped the spinach and pepperoni a bit. Definitely a keeper!
