Hi Ann, the recipe calls for wringing the frozen spinach to remove the extra water, but you can certainly use fresh spinach if you prefer; you would just need to cook the spinach first and squeeze out any excess water. This mushroom quiche recipe is slightly adapted from one we found in a 2002 issue of Martha Stewart magazine.
Of course, these are stereotypes and we should avoid them, because the real rub with quiche is when it is made badly: overcooked, under-seasoned and served days old. For extra colour, add 1/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers to filling before pouring into pie crust.
