1 pound fresh asparagus
1 loaf day-old French bread
1 small onion
1/2 cup bell peppers, red, yellow, green or mixed

Preheat oven to 350° and lightly grease a 9″ x 13″ baking dish.

Wash the asparagus and remove the tough fibrous portion of the stems. Cut the asparagus into bite-size pieces; cook in a steamer until tender crisp. Remove from steamer and plunge into cold water to stop cooking; drain.

Cut the French bread into 1-inch slices. Peel and finely chop the onion. Wash and finely chop the bell peppers. Rinse, pat dry and chop the basil. Grate the cheeses.

Assemble and bake:
Place the bread slices in the prepared baking pan. Spread the vegetables and cheeses evenly over the bread.

Gently pour the egg mixture over the vegetables. Arrange the tomato slices to evenly cover the entire top of the quiche.

Bake for 60 – 70 minutes, until lightly browned.
