Filled with delicate sautéed zucchini and bright, plump cherry tomatoes, these quiches celebrate some of summer’s finest produce. On the inside, creamy ricotta turns the eggy filling light and silky, while buttery Fontina on top adds delightfully melty texture. A salad of tender, peppery arugula and more fresh cherry tomatoes (dressed with a touch of lemon, garlic and olive oil) strikes a perfect balance with the rich and crumbly quiches.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Small dice the zucchini. Quarter the tomatoes. Cut off and discard any rind from the Fontina cheese; small dice. Peel and mince the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Using a peeler, remove the yellow rind of the lemon, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind to get 2 teaspoons of zest (or use a zester). Quarter and deseed the lemon. In a bowl, combine the lemon zest, ¼ of the garlic paste and the juice of all 4 lemon wedges; season with salt and pepper to taste.
