Quick Swiss Chard Quiche

1 bunch of swiss chard (~10 leaves)
2 spring onions with green tops (or 1 small onion), chopped
3-4 garlic scapes, chopped (optional)
1 basic pie crust
2 cups of shredded cheese of your choice (I used 1 cup mozzarella 1 cup cheddar)
5 eggs
1 cup half & half (or use milk- but it will be creamier with more fat)
Salt and white pepper to taste

Saute the onions and scapes until onions are translucent, then add the swiss chard and cook until just wilted.  Line a pie dish with the crust then add the shredded cheese to the bottom.  Spread the sautéed veggies on top of the cheese.  Whisk together eggs, half & half, salt and pepper then pour into crust.  Bake for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees, or until the eggs are solid.
