Preheat the oven to 375º. Stick the pastry shell with fork a few times. Bake for 7 minutes 375º. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Cook the bacon until crisp. Allow the bacon to cool. Crumple or chop the bacon into bits. Layer the asparagus, bacon bits and shredded Swiss cheese in the pie shell.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350º for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Chantal 9-in. Talavera Collection Pie Dish, Glossy Garden Green
Glossy Garden Green Deep Pie Dish

This 9-inch pie dish by Chantal bakes evenly and provides excellent heat retention to keep food warm. It features a decorative fluted edge and 2-inch-high sides. The thick stoneware is smooth and nonporous, the glaze won't retain food odors and it's strong enough to hold up to metal utensils. As with all of Chantal's high-quality ceramic bakeware, this versatile piece can go from freezer to oven, broiler, or microwave without cracking or crazing.
