I have said it before but I love a quiche. It is such an easy week night dinner to whip together plus it is filled with protein and healthy.
This quiche came about as way to clean out our fridge and it was really tasty. The Prosciutto really made the quiche pop and gave it great flavor so don't skip it! You could easily sub bacon if that is what you have on hand. Also if you aren't a fan of tuna you could use canned Atlantic salmon or chicken. Really any meat would work. The combo of the veggies and meat in this quiche was really tasty!
