In a medium mixing bowl, lightly beat eggs. Add the milk, garlic salt, and pepper and combine well.
Remove crust from oven. It is ready when dough in center is set, but not browned.
Spread sauteed vegetables over crust.
Pour egg mixture over vegetables.
Sprinkle shredded cheese over egg mixture and bake quiche in 350 F oven for 40 minutes, or until knife inserted in the center comes out wet, but clean. Cool for 10 minutes and serve.
