This recipe is so rich and creamy. The alfredo sauce in it is the best and makes this dish. Every time my grandson comes to stay he calls ahead of time and asks me to make this-I actually have a cousin that offers to pay me to make it LOL. Thanks to Elana Hansen from New Mexico.

I made this for my family for Valentine's day dinner. I sampled it a few minutes ago, and I have to say this is by far the best Seafood Lasagna I have ever had! I did add a splash or 2 of white wine to the clam juice before adding it, and also used real lump crabmeat instead of the imitation. I don't care for bay scallops so I used sea scallops and just cut them into small pieces to spread throughout the lasagna. What amazing flavors! This is an OUTSTANDING dish and one my family will enjoy for years to come! I can't wait to see their faces when I serve this up!
