Lasagne with a twist. White sauce and seafood makes for a great combination.
Top Review by mersaydees
I love the seafood twist and the fact that the seafood comes out of cans! How cool is that?! Because of that, this is like a pantry-ready lasagne for me when company calls or I'm in the mood for it. The combination of the 4+ cups of liquid made the uncooked noodles going in to the baking come out my favorite al dente texture. I admit that I rinsed and drained the shrimp, and I drained the crab. I also served with a lemon wedge -- a squeeze of lemon really puts this dish over the top! :) Thanks, Vicki! Made for Aussie New Zealand Recipe Swap #21.
