I get positively giddy when spring comes. I giggle to myself when I think it is snowing outside, but it is really spring blossoms blowing off the trees. HAAAAAAAAAAAA-LE-LU-YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Winter is over!!!
So, not surprisingly, my shopping cart and I do a Spring Veggie dance when spring comes. Peas! Asparagus! Radishes! I love all you darlings!
I was going to make a quiche, but these galletees and so amazingly simple and you don’t dilute the veggie-ness with custard. And, there is the easiness. Just roast the veggies, roll out a pie crust (store-bought makes this a week-night go-to meal) and scatter some cheese and veggies on top. That’s it. Really.
Happy Spring, Everyone!

Spread half of Parmesan in the center of pie crust, leaving about 2 inches around edge bare.Spoon all the veggies over Parmesan. Fold up crust around edges, bringing up about 2 inches, meeting the veggies. Brush the crust with egg wash.
