I love this and it's pretty easy to prepare, but makes a great impression on guests. Cook time does not include asparagus and crab legs. I buy my crab legs already cooked. Prep time is approximate.

Excellent! This is a beautiful dish to serve and absolutely wonderful. I did have a little trouble keeping everything warm since it cooks so quickly. I boiled the asparagus first, removed from heat but left them in the water while I cooked the veal. I bought pre-cooked crab legs and tossed the bag in with the aspargus to heat them while the veal was cooking. My husband really felt special. Thanks!
