Lasagna isn't typically associated with Mother's Day, but it is the dish that inspired us this year as we searched for a fresh way to offer Mom a delicious brunch.

We took some of our favorite lasagna ingredients -- ricotta cheese, spinach, thyme and Asiago cheese -- but instead of layering them with noodles, we mixed them together in a rich, but still light tart filling. With a store-bought crust, the tart can be in the oven in 20 minutes and on the table 40 minutes later. And similar to a good quiche, this tart can be served hot or room temperature.
