    From the Test Kitchen

    This crowd-pleasing quiche showcases zucchini, tomato, and melty fontina cheese all baked inside a flaky, golden brown crust. A side salad of peppery arugula and crunchy almonds––plus the savory romesco sauce we're drizzling on the quiche––brings it all together on a nutty note.

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 425°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve the tomatoes. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Grate the fontina on the large side of a box grater.

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced zucchini. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic, halved tomatoes, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the vegetables are browned and softened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
