WOW! I made this while on vacation with friends on the Outer Banks. Everyone loved this. I added a few things which turned it into a mega-lasagna or The Lasagna That Ate New York. I used a pound of lump crab bay scallops and shrimp in separate layers. I also added a layer of ricotta cheese mixed with a couple of beaten eggs. For the sauce I took the water I used to boil the shrimp added a little white wine and reduced it to about one cup. I started the sauce with the butter/flour roux gradually added milk shrimp reduction and half-and-half. I also added Old Bay seasoning paprika a few dashes of Tabasco and some basil. Total liquid was approximately five cups but I was making a big lasagna. I added the grated parmesan to the sauce last. I layered in this order between the pasta: crabmeat ricotta scallops shrimp. The scallops were small so I did not need to pre-cook them. It's important to let this rest 15-20 minutes after removing from the oven so your lasagna squares will hold together when serving. This made a fantastic dinner with garlic bread and a mixed green & romaine salad. Thanks for making everyone happy at the dinner table! Read More

My lasagna turned out pretty well but I cheated. In reading the other reviews I was concerned that it may turn out rather bland. I'm not very good with adding seasonings and such so I bought a mushroom alfredo sauce. I added the parmesan cheese to that and layered everything accordingly. I will probably make it this way again.

I tried this recipe on a crowd of family members for my son's confirmation party (I never do new reicpes on my family they are very picky) They raved about it and all asked for the recipe. I also added 3 tsp. of Old Bay season ( a Maryland thing) to the white sauce and a layer of ricotta cheese (2 cups ricotta cheese 1 cup shredded mozerrella 2 tsp. parsley 1 egg and of course 2 tsp. Old Bay season)in between the seafood layers.....What a hit! Thank you! Read More

This recipe is a great idea. I liked the taste but I added 2 Tbsp. Old Bay to the white sauce as someone suggested. That was too much and it made the dish too salty. Next time I'll add only 1 Tbsp. Like any lasagna it's a time-consuming dish but it's well worth it. Read More

this is a nice lasagne if you're looking for something elegant. I added a layer of spinach though for color. Also I wouldn't recommend baking the entire 45 min. that was way too long. Read More

Loved the recipe and will definitely be making this again. This is what I did: I added some garlic powder ( 2 tsp) to the sauce. My pan was a little bigger so I only had two layers plus the top. I also slightly chopped the shrimp with my mini food processor. Added just a touch of parsley on the top before baking. It turned out FABULOUS! This recipe is a must try if you enjoy seafood.

Very tasty! I made the modifications as others mentioned. I added 2 tsp garlic pwd salt & papper 1/2 tsp Old Bay. I only used 2 cups of mozarella & added 1 cup of Ricotta I made it in a 9x9 stoneware pan but used the full batch of sauce - it was too runny - next time will use less sauce by maybe 1/3. Read More

I made this recipe over the last weekend and it came out great! By reading other reviewers I've made some modifications: increased the sauce by 1 cup; used 1 6oz jar of good parmesan cheese (put 4oz into the sauce and reserved the remaining to combine w/ 1/2 cup of bread crumbs and spread on top of lasagna); added some oregano garlic powder and Old Bay seasoning to the sauce; used 1 12oz package of shredded mozzarella w/ 1 cup of ricotta plus 1 egg and some oregano; and last but not least I used the incredible 'No Boiling Lasagna' from Barilla - hassle free time saving perfect cooking! Super delicious lasagna thanks! Read More

Delicious but better if you: 1)Cut the cheese down--it only needs 1-2 cups of mozzarella. Still cheesy and much healthier! 2)Saute 1/2 pound mushrooms and add them to the white sauce. 3)You can use crab substitute (surimi) in place of the crab and cut both crab and shrimp by 1/2 Read More

Wow! I made this for my boyfriend because he loves shrimp and lasagna and chose this recipe over another one with better ratings because the ingredients cost less. I made this as the recipe described except doubled the sauce as someone recommended used half the shrimp and (imitation) crab and mozzarella and added spinach as one of the layers. The sauce was bland as written but really something with salt pepper garlic powder and Emeril's Essence added. Next time I'll just do 1 1/2 times the amount of sauce though because it overflowed in my oven:o( Read More
