Italian Sausage, Kale + Zucchini Quiche

I am always experimenting with quiche recipes.  Quiches are so easy to make and filling.  I think this may be my best recipe yet.  It is filled with spicy Italian Sausage, lots of Grueyere cheese and plenty of greens in the form of kale and zuchinni.  The combo is really fantastic.  You won't be disappointed, it is super flavorful.
Also I am starting something new on my cooking posts, at the bottom of each post I will link to all the tools I used to make my meal.  I get a lot of requests for what cooking tools I use and love,  this way you can see what I am actually cooking with!

- 1 Pie Crust
- 1 lb hot Italian sausage browned
- 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
- 1.5 cups baby kale
- 1/2 large white onion sliced thinly
- 1 small zucchini sliced
- 2 cups Gruyere
- 6 eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and cook pie shell 10 mins.  Remove from oven and cool.

Brown sausage and drain off all fat.  I like to place on a plate with paper towels to soak up the grease.  In the same pan you cooked the sausage in, add a little olive oil and saute onions and zucchini about 5-7 mins.  Then add in kale and sun dried tomatoes, cook just until kale is wilted.  Remove from heat and stir in browned sausage.  In a separate bowl whisk 6 eggs with flour, baking soda, and salt and pepper.  Stir in sausage mixture until combined well.  Finally stir in cheese.   Pour mixture into cooled pie crust.  Bake at 350 degrees about 30-40 minutes.  This can be made ahead and save well in the fridge foe a few days.

Do you make your own pie crust or do you have a good store bought option you'd recommend. I usually end up skipping the crust part because I'm too lazy to make my own, but man do I love some quiche!
