Seafood Lasagna Recipe

This rich satisfying dish, adapted from a recipe given to me by a friend, is my husband's favorite. I usually serve it on his birthday. It's loaded with scallops, shrimp and crab in a creamy sauce. I consider this the "crown jewel" in my repertoire of recipes. —Elena Hansen, Ruidoso, New Mexico

"Best seafood lasagna I've made to date in all categories - taste, texture, and presentation. Relatively easy, felt good going together. I substituted 1/2 lb of fresh crabmeat for the imitation crab. My foodie dinner guests thought it was one of the best they have ever tasted. Note that it is very rich and easily serves 12. When making for just ourselves, I think I'll cut this into 15 pieces."

"Wow... Just wow. A sinfully rich and creamy big occasion lasagna for sure. I made no changes except to omit green onions, use my own favoured combo of seafood (shrimp, squid and snapper fish) and to make extra of the white sauce as advised by a lot of reviewers. Served this at a late night Christmas eve gathering and the whole thing was polished off in minutes ! And everyone raved about how good it was. I am especially pleased at how flavourful the white sauce was and the seafood wasn't overcooked at all because of the double cooking process (seafood is boiled then baked). Yummm!!!"
