1. Trim the asparagus, using the tender parts for the quiche, and saving the tougher stems for soup. Cook or steam asparagus until crisp-tender; drain well. Arrange cooked asparagus pieces over bottom of pastry shell. Top with diced ham.

2. In a small bowl, combine Swiss cheese and flour. Sprinkle over ham.

3. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with a fork until frothy. Add half & half, salt, and pepper. Mix well and pour into pastry shell.

4. Sprinkle Organic Valley Parmesan Cheese on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. Quiche is done when a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Note
Try leftover Organic Prairie Bacon as a alternative to the ham.
