Looking for a healthy spinach quiche recipe that’s delicious and easy to prepare? This quick quiche with pesto and sun-dried tomatoes will not disappoint! It’s light on legwork but loaded with flavor.

We like to prepare our own fresh pesto. But there are many tasty store-bought versions that will save prep time.

This is a wonderful make-ahead dish for gentle rewarming and it also freezes well. It’s a delightful brunch entree when entertaining. And perfect forany everyday meal!
