  1. Preheat oven to 375F Place crab meat in bottom of pastry shell. Cut bottom parts of asparagus spears into half-inch slices and scatter over crab. Scatter parmesan over asparagus. Beat eggs and milk together, and season to taste with nutmeg, cayenne and salt. Pour over crab/asparagus mixture.

  2. Arrange reserved asparagus tips in a spoke-like pattern on top. Bake in preheated oven until set (about 45 minutes to an hour). Let sit for about 15 minutes before serving.
