White Lasagna

This is simple and quick to assemble and tastes like it was made by a pro.

Ingredients:

  • 9 lasagna noodles cooked
  • 1 jar of Alfredo sauce (or make your own)
  • 1 can of cream of shrimp soup (or cream of mushroom)
  • 1 can of crab meat or small shrimp drained
  • 1/2 lb. of Italian blend cheese, shredded
  • Advertisement

  • 1 lb. of mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1 lb. of uncooked shrimp, shelled

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Take a 13x9 inch pan and spray the sides and bottom with cooking spray.

Mix Alfredo, cream of soup, crab, and cheeses in a bowl.

Lay 3 of the noodles in the bottom of the dish. Cover the noodles with 1/3 of the sauce. Place 1/2 of the shrimp on top. If they are large chop them up. 50-60 per pound work well with out chopping them up. I put about 10 per noodle.

Place a layer of noodles on top and press down to push the shrimp into the sauce. Repeat the layer. Top the layer with the last noodles and cover with sauce. (I like to put a little Parmesan on top of the sauce.)

Bake for 45-60 minutes until it is bubbly. It will be on the longer side if the cheese is cold. Once it is out of the oven let set for 15 -20 minutes to jell up.

Options:

  • Try adding some chopped sun dried tomatoes to the sauce.
  • Put some spinach or chopped broccoli on top of the shrimp.
  • Use 16 oz ricotta instead of cream of soup.
  • Use chicken instead of shrimp, chopped up or shredded and use cream of chicken soup.
  • Imitation crab or lobster worked once it was drained well. Just press it in some paper towels.
  • I have not used raw bay scallops, but I think they would work and give it some sweetness.

This reheats well in the microwave and freezes well.

What exactly is the Italian blend? Does it refer to cheese, herbs, or what? You mention putting on Parmesan which is not included in ingredients but you never mention putting on the shredded mozzarella. I would put it on in the end where you mention Parmesan.

Your directions are very unclear to anybody who has never made lasagna before. Thankfully I have. But you do need to make them clearer.
This recipe does sound good however, and I will be trying it.

Editor's Note: The Italian blend refers to a blend of cheese. We have corrected the ingredients above.

Bev,

Sorry I should have said Italian blend cheese, but I thought it was implied since it was 1/2 pound. Italian blend cheese is normally a blend of Provolone, Mozzarella, Romano and Parmesan. Most supermarkets will have it in the cheese case.
As for the extra Parmesan, it was not included in the original dish maybe I should have put under options
If you read the recipe the second line "Mix Alfredo, cream of soup, crab, and cheeses in a bowl." tells you what to do with the cheeses.
