Reviews for Easy Seafood Lasagna
"This lasagna was good! I doubled the amount of lasagna noodles that I used because I like pasta (I do that with all lasagna recipes) and used a chardonay for the white wine. I loved the taste that the wine added but if I were making this recipe for kids, I would recommend using half wine and half chicken broth to tone it down a bit. My husband really enjoyed it which was a surprise since seafood isn't always his favorite. I seperated mine into a couple dishes so that I could freeze some for later; hopefully that will reheat well. I will definitely make this again although I would not hesitate to use ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese to see how that tastes."
"This recipe is to die for! I have made it twice now and family and friends loved it too! The second time I made it, I added a small frozen package of lobster meat and scallops along with the shrimp and crab meat and it was even more delicous!"
