3750 will be configured with at least 2 vlans. One vlan for routing to the ASA, and all other vlans for your LAN. The 3750 needs a default route pointed at the ASA -this can be done statically or via dynamic routing protocol such as OSPF or EIGRP. The ASA will need to have a route pointed at the 3750 for all internal subnets - this, like the default route, can be done via static or dynamic routing protocols.

From here it's just straight configuration on the devices. Configure your firewall with whatever ACL, NAT, and VPN you might need, and configure your switches with any vlans, trunks, or policies you need to use.

If you plan to configure  DMZ on the firewall, use a separate interface on the firewall to connect to the 3750, and the DMZ vlan should be layer 2 only - let the firewall be the default gateway for all DMZ traffic unless you plan to configure advanced features on the switch like VRF or MPLS.
