Spinach Ricotta Quiche

French cuisine always attract me as high class food, so eating french food can make the day special. But there is no french restaurant in my local area, so I’d just cook it.

Today’s main character that is making my day special is…spinach ricotta quiche!

If you take the first bite of my quiche, you will feel the harmony of eggs and sweet, fresh cheese with another crunchy but melting cheese all at once on your mouth.
