This has to be the strangest looking quiche I've ever made. It came out of the oven looking very brown and dry. It tastes ok, but as it turns out, I forgot to write down the mozzarella cheese on the recipe. I don't know if that would have made any difference in how it looks though. What the heck, I saved 1/2 carb per serving with my mistake! I found this in an Italian cookbook and the only major change was to eliminate the crust and use cream instead of milk. I also used 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning instead of the oregano and basil. I don't think I like this well enough to make again.
