Ham and Spring Vegetable Ricotta Quiche

This recipe is another one that I’ve developed for Pure Taste Recipes.  

I don’t have many words for this post. Honestly, words have been difficult lately.  It could have something to do with the fact that it’s the week before spring break and I teach middle schoolers…

Or it could have something to do with the fact that I’m contemplating a number of life changes, and don’t know how to know what the right decision is. Although, does anyone (and if you do, can you please tell me your secret)?

Or, it could have something to do with the fact that life can be overwhelming at times.  Whether it be with work or family relationships, life sometimes has a way of reminding us that we are definitely not in control, so don’t even try. When I end up feeling this way, which I imagine we all do at some point in our lives, it helps to spend a little time in my kitchen.  I find myself forgetting about the drama, the overwhelming to-do list and getting lost in the process. Which is exactly what I did with this dish.

It also doesn’t hurt that there’s ricotta in it, if you’re going to get lost, make sure there’s ricotta along the way.


This quiche is the perfect transitional meal.  It has the comfort that makes you think of winter coziness, but the bright springy vegetables to remind you that there is in fact light at the end of the tunnel, you just have to be willing to take a few difficult steps towards it. Luckily, there’s ricotta to guide you… Now if only life were that simple.


It’s the perfect dish to bring to Easter brunch, or to make for a Sunday meal.
