I made this lasagna last night for my family and guests. I found it to be very easy to make. The un-cooked lasagna noodles caught me a little off guard, but they were perfect when the baking time was up. Everyone loved the flavor, texture, blend of shrimp, crab, and cheeses. My mother-in-law even asked me to email her the recipe. This one's a keeper and I will be making it again.

I'm sorry but my whole family thought this was awful! the taste was extremely fishy. maybe instead of parmesan use asiago cheese might taste better.

This lasagna was the easiest lasagna I made! I choose to change the layering to sauce, seafood, cottage cheese then the lasagne sheet, I repeated this step until all the ingredients finished. In my opinion the seafood just on the top, would be lost and they lasagne would be just sauce, cottage cheese and noodles. I also doubled the seafood and used large green prawns/shrimp. I made it for a dinner party and the guests all said it's a five star for taste. Thank you twissis
