roasted tomato and veggie quiche!

hello there peeps! here is a very simple and satisfying dish that is so versatile that you can eat it for any meal of the day... take some pie dough, veggies, eggs, cream and cheese and voila! savory baked goodness!
for this particular quiche, i sauteed some veggies: carrots, bell peppers, zucchini, and onions in a light tomato sauce... i cooked this down until all the liquid had disappeared... i put this aside while i readied the tart pan... i had some pie dough all rolled out and ready to go (it's always nice to have homemade pastry dough on hand, but hey, store bought is just as good... and a time saver too!!) once the dough was placed and pressed into the tart pan, i pricked it a few times with a fork, and baked it for 10 minutes in a 375 degree oven...
while the pie crust was baking, i prepped the filling... in a medium sized bowl, i lightly whisked together 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of heavy cream, 1/2 cup of shredded cheese (i used a blend of monterrey and cheddar), and salt and pepper... now to assemble... i spread the veggies onto the bottom of the crust, and then poured the egg and cream mixture evenly over the veggies... but i wasn't done yet... i had this lovely ugly ripe tomato staring at me, so i sliced it up, and placed it on top... then i put it in the oven for 25 minutes and baked it until nice and firm... let it cool before serving, and enjoy!!
mmm...mmmm... delish-ious!

happy baking everyone!
