Ham & Zucchini Quiche...

I love a good Quiche! This recipe is simple & the results are always perfect! I did a rustic finish to the edges of the Quiche crust....It didn't need to look perfect, because it tastes perfect! Just a little secret...I do a rustic crust when my rheumatoid arthritis is literally a pain!
