Spaghetti Quiche

AuthorKathleen GloverCategory, , , , DifficultyBeginner

This recipe was inspired by my refusal to throw away leftovers. Quiche is usually my go-to for transforming leftovers into an incredible breakfast and by adding leftover spaghetti the dish becomes easier to make (no pesky pastry crust!) and heartier. Otherwise, this dish is a blank canvas for whatever you have in your fridge.  Leftover green onions? Throw them in there! Leftover sausage from dinner last night? What could be better! Seriously, go crazy with this and it will not disappoint.
