To prepare fresh asparagus: Snap off and discard woody base of stalks. Slice with long slanting cuts 1/2 inch thick. Cook in small amount of boiling, salted water until just tender. Drain.
Prepare pie shell or use a frozen one and bake for 10 minutes at 400°.
Reduce oven heat to 375°.
Sauté bacon, cut into small pieces. When crisp, remove and drain on paper towel.
Sprinkle the bottom of the pie shell with bacon, Swiss cheese, and then the asparagus.
With a rotary beater, beat eggs, cream, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Beat until just combined and pour over the ingredients in the pie shell. (If you wish, reserve 1/4 cup asparagus to decorate the top after the mixture has been poured in.)
Bake 40 minutes or until a knife inserted one inch from the pastry edge comes out clean. Serve immediately.
