How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the pepper and onion and cook for 3 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

Step 2

Add the rice to the saucepan and cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add the wine and cook and stir until it’s absorbed. Add 2 cups of the broth and cook and stir until it's absorbed. Add the remaining broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring until the broth is absorbed before adding more. Stir in the asparagus and crabmeat with the last broth addition.

Step 3

Stir in the cheese. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Serve the risotto with additional cheese, if desired.

Recipe Tips

  • Tip: If you have some light or heavy cream on hand, stir in 2 tablespoons with the Parmesan cheese for a creamier dish.

    Crab and Asparagus Risotto

    I would reccommend adding more vegetables i added two cups of asparagus and could probably have done more.I also did vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and added garlic and lemon pepper...i found flavoring was a little weak.

    I added fat-free half half with the Parmesean cheese. This is a fabulous recipe! Rave reviews from eight dinner guests!
