I made this for a shindig I was having at my house! Lasagna is truly a great dish to bring to a pot luck or have at a small gathering. No need for sides as long as you pack the lasagna with delicious, hearty, healthy fillings. Of course you wouldn’t find meat in my lasagna these days so I had to load up on Fresh seafood from my local seafood market. This recipe was quick and easy and taste awesome!

Ingredients:

1 green onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup butter, divided
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 bottle (8 ounces) clam juice
1 pound fresh bay scallops
1 pound uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 pound fresh crabmeat, chopped
1/4 teaspoon white pepper, divided
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups 2% milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
9 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained

Instructions:

1. In a large skillet, saute onion in oil and 2 tablespoons butter until tender. Stir in broth and clam juice; bring to a boil. Add scallops, shrimp, crab and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 4-5 minutes or until shrimp turn pink and scallops are firm and opaque, stirring gently. Drain, reserving cooking liquid; set seafood mixture aside.
2. In a large saucepan, melt the remaining butter; stir in flour until smooth. Combine milk and reserved cooking liquid; gradually add to the saucepan. Add salt and remaining pepper. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
Remove from the heat; stir in cream and 1/4 cup cheese. Stir 3/4 cup white sauce into the seafood mixture.

3. Preheat oven to 350°. Spread 1/2 cup white sauce in a greased 13×9-in. baking dish. Top with three noodles; spread with half of the seafood mixture and 1-1/4 cups sauce. Repeat layers. Top with remaining noodles, sauce and cheese.

4. Bake, uncovered, at for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting. Yield: 12 servings.

Enjoy!
