This is a combination of Quiche Italiano and the topping from Chicken and Spinach Parmesan. It came out delicious. Your family will enjoy this, even without pasta. It's not like a quiche so you'll need to spoon this out of the pan or cut it somewhat into squares and scoop it out with a big spatula. The parmesan topping goes perfect with this dish. This is a keeper.
