Roast Pepper Quiche with Mozzarella
We love quiches in my family, served with salad they make a very nice and light lunch. This quiche tastes truly delicious. Using different colour peppers and adding pitted green olives to the pastry makes this quiche appealing to both the eye and the palate. The flavour of roasted peppers with mozzarella and basil gives it a wow factor. For more ideas of delicious and tasty quiches visit the category Savoury pies (Recipes here).
