In a skillet, saute onion until tender. Add lamb's-quarters; cook and stir until wilted. Cover and remove from heat. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs and milk. Stir in salt, pepper, 1 cup of cheese and the lamb's-quarters mixture. Pour into pie shell. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake at 400F for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350F and bake 30 minutes more, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5-10 minutes before cutting.
