“Showcase the finest tomatoes of the season in this gorgeous quiche. A light and flaky pie crust made with Crisco shortening is filled with eggs, cream fresh basil, three cheeses, and then decorated with plump and juicy tomato slices. Scrumptious!! I found this recipe in one of our local papers, and once I tried it our family loved it, had to share it with everyone.”
