What You'll Need

2 tablespoons 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 pound asparagus or green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 pound refrigerated pasteurized crabmeat (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

How to Make It

    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.
