My friend Susie posted about an amazing recipe she made from Taste of Home earlier this year and I knew we had to try it. THANK YOU SUSIE! Mom helped me adapt it slightly, but we didn’t change much. We used real crab instead of imitation and added some cheese (duh). We also made it in a smaller dish in order to make it an extra layer and a bit higher. THE MORE THE BETTER! I knew the recipe was a winner when I read the Taste of Home reviews. Over 100 reviews and almost all of them 5 stars. That’s almost unheard of! This is a MUST MAKE you guys! If you love seafood, you’re going to love this Cheesy Seafood Lasagna.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons plus ½ cup unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 (8 oz) bottle clam juice
  • 12 oz. bay scallops; cut in half, if desired
  • 1 lb. small shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 (8 oz) package crabmeat, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2½ cups cup half ‘n half, divided into one 1½ cup portion and one 1 cup portion
  • ¼ cup white wine; a semi-dry wine works well (do NOT use a sweet wine)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded, divided into two ¼ cup portions
  • 8 Oven-Ready lasagna noodles
  • 1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x9 inch casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil and 2 tablespoons butter. Sauté the sliced green onion until tender, then add the minced garlic and sauté another 15 seconds.
  3. Add the broth and clam juice, stir and bring to a boil.
  4. Add scallops, shrimp, crab and ¼ teaspoon pepper and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered, for 5 minutes or until shrimp is pink and scallops are firm and opaque all the way through. Stir the mixture gently while scallops are cooking. Drain, reserving the liquid. Pour seafood mixture in a medium bowl and set it aside until ready to use.
  5. In the same large skillet, melt the remaining ½ cup butter; stir in flour and whisk until smooth. Combine 1½ cups half ‘n half and reserved cooking liquid, then gradually and while whisking, add the liquid to the flour mixture in the skillet. Add salt and the remaining ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook, while stirring, for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  6. Remove flour mixture from the heat and stir in remaining 1 cup half ‘n half, wine, red pepper flakes, and ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese creating a white sauce.
  7. Stir ¾ cup of the white sauce into the seafood mixture.
  8. To make a 4-layer lasagna:
  9. Spread ½ cup of the white sauce in the prepared dish. Cover with uncooked lasagna noodles then spread with ¼ of the seafood mixture and ¼ of the white sauce. Sprinkle with ¼ shredded Italian Cheese Blend, ¼ Mozzarella and the grated Parmesan. Repeat three more times and top with white sauce and the different cheeses.
  10. Bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Allow the lasagna to set 10-15 minutes before cutting.
  11. To serve: Garnish with chopped, fresh parsley.
  12. Enjoy!

Do you think you could make this ahead the night before? Or, up to what step do you think it could be made ahead of time?
    Becky Hardin
    I definitely think you could make it the night before and refrigerate overnight. You could potentially freeze as well but I haven't made it that way so I can't say for sure exactly how that would work. But the night before shouldn't be any issue. Hope you enjoy it!
Annie
Seafood always makes for the best meal! This lasagna sounds PERFECT!
Danielle
This sounds amazing! Definitely a recipe to try, and I'm sure the boyfriend would love it as well. One questions though, is the package of crabmeat real crabmeat, or imitation? Thanks!
    Becky Hardin
    We used real crab meat. It's a little pricey but I do think it makes a nice difference. You can use either, whichever you prefer. Hope you and your boyfriend both love it!
Net worthier
Well this looks amazing!!
Dwana
Do you have to use scallops? Or could you substitute something else? If so, what would sub good in this?
    Becky Hardin
    You don't have to! You could just use more of one of the other types of seafood or leave it out completely. Enjoy!
Susie
This looks amazing. I'm making my grocery list now!
Sabrina
Can you substitute cooking wine for real wine? I'm not accustomed to cooking with real wine.
    Becky Hardin
    You can! We have always found the depth of flavor in real wine is really nice in cooking, but you can use whatever your preference is. The alcohol content cooks out, so no worries there.
Sandy
Hi...I'm excited to make this! I do have a question. The recipe calls for 8 noodles, from the look of preparation, it looks like 9??? 3 per layer?? Is that right? I also wondered if it could be 'doubled 'and made in a 9x13 pan....would love to know your thoughts!! 😊
Sue
Do you recommend a substitute for the clam juice- really don't like clams so not sure if I could taste it in the lasagna.
    Kim
    I read in another recipe where someone suggested chicken broth as a substitution for clam juice.
Ruth
Wonderful recipe. Used a slightly over a kilo of good quality marinara seafood mix. Worked well. Delicious. Thank you.
