"Very good recipe. I had made it on Christmas Day. Used real crab meat. It is one of those special occasion recipes."
"This is a truly delicious lasagna. The leftovers taste amazing too. I will definitely make this again. Next time I won't precook the seafood. The shrimps were slightly overcooked in mine. Still, I can't complain. This recipe is a keeper!"
"Don't try this on kids' activity night! This dish is time-consuming but oh-so worth it! "Imitation" crabmeat???? I don't think so! I use 3, 6-oz. cans lump crabmeat. I also use half & half instead of whipping cream, which is what I do for all recipes calling for whipping cream. Other than those 2 changes (minor), the recipe is excellent as written."
"I made this for Father's Day! It was delicious. It had the perfect combination of seafood. I used real crab meat."
"Its is a very good recipe. However, I find using too much real crab meat will give it an overwhelming taste. That's most likely why they suggest imitation crab meat."
