Asparagus Quiche

1 tube (8 oz) refrigerated crescent rolls

2 tsp Dijon mustard

1 1/2 lb fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into

1/2-inch pieces

1 med onion, chopped

8 oz fresh sliced mushrooms

1/4 c cubed butter

2 eggs lightly beaten

2 c shredded cheese such as mozzarella

1/4 c fresh parsley, minced

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp each of basil, oregano and rubbed sage

• Separate crescent dough into eight triangles and place in an ungreased 9-inch pie plate with the points toward the center. Press onto the bottom and up the sides to form a crust; seal perforations. Spread with mustard; set aside.

• In a large skillet, saute asparagus, onion and mushrooms in butter until asparagus is crisp tender. In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients and stir in asparagus mixture. Pour into crust.

• Bake at 375° for 25 to 30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the edge comes out clean. Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting.
