Chervil, pea and feta quiche

I haven't tried this yet, but it sounds delicious!

Chervil, pea and feta quiche

*4 large eggs
*1.5 cups of cream
*1/2 tsp. salt
*3 tbsp. roughly chopped fresh chervil
*1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh chives
*1-2 sheets ready-made shortcrust pastry
*1 cup fresh shelled peas
*4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
*1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and cream; season with salt and stir in the herbs.
2) Lightly oil a 5x13 rectangular pan or a 9inch round pan. Gently place pastry into the pan, using 2 sheets if required. Mould the pastry into the sides and trim any excess.
3) Sprinkle the top of the pastry with peas and feta. Pour over the egg and herb mixture and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
4) Place the quiche on the bottom shelf in the oven, cook for 30-35 minutes or until the quiche is set. Enjoy!
