Hello my friends, Cathy @ A Bit of The Blarney is sharing a traditional family recipe along with a story about it. I think this is a wonderful idea. The only problem I am having is that I have seldom made this recipe....my late husband always did. He loved seafood and he always made this after Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas when he was tired of anything turkey. I loved it as well so whenever I have the opportunity to have this meal it brings a smile to my face and many warm memories.
Seafood Lasagna -
Lasagna Noodles (we used Catellie Express-oven ready)
First Mixture - 2 Tbs. of butter - melt and cook 1 chopped onion in frying pan
In a separate bowl beat
8 oz. softened cream cheese
1 1/2 cups sour cream
2 Tbs. basil
pinch of salt & pepper
Add melted butter and onion to this mixture
Second Mixture - Combine 2 cans of Cream of Mushroom Soup with 2/3 cup of milk
1 package simulated crab - cut into 1" strips
3 cups of shrimp
3 cups of scallops
In a 13 x 9 lasagna dish start with a little of each of the first 2 mixtures, then place a layer of noodles followed by 1st mixture, then 2nd mixture. Repeat layers and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes top with 1 cup of cheddar cheese. Brown under broiler and let stand for at least 15 minutes before serving.....I always serve this with warm rolls or French Bread.
I know it sounds like a lot of work but it isn't really, and it is totally worth it. It is so good. Now my favorite part is the chilled glass of white wine that goes so well with it.
Good Night and God Bless........:-) Hugs
