CRUST: mix all ingredients in bowl and press into the bottom of a sprayed round pan. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes until center is firm. Baking time depends on the type and size of pan used, so you may need to take out early.

Let cool for 5-10 minutes while the crust finishes cooking. Beat eggs and heavy whipping cream until fluffy. Add in the asparagus mixture to the eggs, stir, and then pour into crust.

Sprinkle top with some cracked black pepper and a little salt. Place cherry tomatoes and asparagus spears on top. Bake an additional 15-20 minutes until cooked through. Center should be firm and edges slightly brown.
