Spinach and Ricotta Quiche

I wanted to make something different than the usual quiche, using a different type of cheese and also vegetables. Ricotta is light in texture and also the taste is not overwhelming. I mixed it with a couple of sauteéd vegetables and topped with a sprinkle of parmesan. The quiche is crustless because I like to keep this dish light so I can enjoy dessert afterwards.
