Recipe by Laura O.
Excellent seafood flavor - scallops, shrimp, and crab with just the right amount of creamy sauce. I can never have just one serving of this. I think the clam juice is what gives the sauce such a good flavor. I use precooked shrimp so I don't have to cook them with the scallops at all. I always add extra Parmesan cheese (the real shredded kind, not the powdery grated kind) to the sauce and on top. You can use either white pepper or black pepper.

I've been making this recipe for over a year now. I got it from the Taste of Home website. It's the best seafood lasagna I've ever had. A little time consuming but well worth it however, I wouldn't recommend using precooked shrimp-they tend to get hard during the baking time. This has a wonderful flavor and it's very filling. Thanks for posting it.
