Crab and Asparagus Risotto

Creamy risotto gets transformed into a scrumptious main dish by adding crabmeat and asparagus. It requires a little stirring, but one bite will prove that it is worth the effort!

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium orange pepper, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion or shallots
  • 2 cups uncooked Arborio rice or regular long-grain white rice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 6 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth (Regular, Natural Goodness or Certified Organic)
  • 1/2 lb. asparagus or green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 lb. refrigerated pasteurized crabmeat (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • If you have some light or heavy cream on hand, stir in 2 tablespoons with the Parmesan cheese for a creamier dish.
