Asparagus Pie

My seven year old would prefer that I name this “spare-me-the-gus” pie.  Despite the fact that he used to like asparagus, he now has decided it is an evil food and will not go near it.  Fortunately, the rest of the family loved the pie.  I like this recipe because of its different crust.  Using shredded potatoes instead of a flour crust was a nice change from my typical quiches and makes it perfect for a breakfast, lunch or dinner entree.
