Dinners should be comforting because after a long day of work and then some more, all you want to truly do is put your feet up, switch on an old TV show or find a good book to re-read and dig into a bowl of deliciousness.
A baked Pasta Quiche works well within the above definition and ticks the right boxes 🙂
And if it’s made without refined white flour it’s even better!
The crust is made of Wholewheat and the filling is flourless.
Hope your dinner is as comforting and ‘soul-foodish’ .
