Heat cream sauce and add cheese, mustard, and paprika.
When cheese is melted, stir in wine.
Cover the bottom of a greased 1-quart casserole with a little of the sauce.
Add half the cooked spaghetti in a thin layer, then a layer of asparagus and a layer of crab.
Cover with about half the remaining sauce and add a few chopped almonds.
Then repeat layers of spaghetti, asparagus, and crab; pour on remaining sauce; and top with remaining almonds.
Set casserole in a shallow pan of hot water.
Place in moderately slow oven (325°) and bake, uncovered, approximately 30 minutes or until hot and bubbling.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
