From the Test Kitchen

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.

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.
