This is Paula Deen's recipe and oh-my-gawd, it's good!
- 12 lasagna noodles (I used the kind you don't have to boil)
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 1⁄2 cups half-and-half
- 1 cup grated romano cheese
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 3⁄4 lb sea scallops
- 3⁄4 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1⁄2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- Preheat oven to 375°F; spray 13X9" pan with vegetable oil cooking spray.
- Melt butter in a large, heavy skillet and cook onion over how heat until very soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook about 1 minutes longer. Over medium-low heat, stir in the flour with a whisk, then gradually add the half-and-half, allowing the sauce to thicken slightly before adding more. When the sauce has thickened to about the consistency of whipping cream, add the Romano cheese and stir well. Add the salt and pepper and stir again. Add the scallops and cook for about 3-4 minutes, then add the shrimp and cook for 1-2 minutes or just until the shrimp turn pink. Turn off the heat.
- Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the sauce from the skillet into the prepared pan. Cover the bottom of the pan with lasagna noodles, placing them side by side. Spoon 1/3 of sauce over the noodles, distributing half of the seafood evenly. Layer with more lasagna noodles, 1/3 of sauce, and remaining seafood. Cover with remaining noodles and the remaining sauce. Don't spoon any seafood on top of the noodles, just use sauce. Tuck in any edges of the noodles so they are all coated with sauce. Top with Parmesan.
- Bake for 25 minutes, uncovered, or until bubbly and browned. Allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.
I make this all the time and it is an absolute favorite. I do not use the romano cheese. I use a Delfino creamy havarti cheese that I get from walmart. I also top it with mozzarella and parmesan.
Other than that I follow the recipe. Amazing.
Wonderful recipe. Made on many occasion. Great for entertaining. Served with ceasar salad. Perfect meal....I add extra seafood.
Very good and easy to make. It was a little rich for me and adding mushroom would help.
