Sundried Tomato Pesto Quiche

Quiche: the new travel snack.

Pesto Quiche with Sundried Tomatoes and Parmesan. Beautiful and healthy too!

Okay, “snack” might be a little aggressive, but I guarantee that if I whip out this golden-crusted, green goddess of a quiche on my next flight and offer my neighbors a slice, they will be decidedly less miffed when I climb over them for no fewer than three bathroom breaks. They might even let me set the quiche on their tray table while I make my exit.

Regardless of its airport security status, quiche still is well-suited for portability, so when Ben’s aunt asked me what I’d like to bring for our family Easter celebration in Chicago (a two-hour drive from our home), I immediately turned to my good travel buddy, quiche.
