JEAN'S SEAFOOD LASAGNA

JEAN'S SEAFOOD LASAGNA

8 lasagna noodles
1 c. onions chopped
2 tbsp butter
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 c cream style cottage cheese
1 egg beaten
2 tsp dried basil, crushed
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1/3 c. milk
1/2 c. white wine (we use grape juice)
1 1/2 lbs shrimp, cooked, shelled & halved
1 lb white lump crabmeat
1/4 c Parmesan cheese grated
1/2 c sharp American cheese, shredded

Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions, drain.  Arrange 4 noodles on the bottom of a greased 13" x 9" x 2" Pyrex dish.  Cook onion in butter until tender; blend in cream cheese.  Stir in cottage cheese, egg, basil, salt and pepper.  Spread half of this mixture atop noodles.  Combine soup, milk and wine stir in shrimp and crab.  Spread half of this atop cheese layer.  Repeat layers.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Bake, uncovered in a 350-degree oven for 45 minutes.  Top with American cheese and bake a few minutes longer until cheese melts.  Can be frozen.

This is a recipe I make on special occasions.  As Edward and David had to go to the doctor on Edward's ankle, I got my kitchen back.  As Edward has cooked all our favorite meals, I thought I would make one of his.  This is really enjoyed by our family.  Hope you enjoy it too.

Be With God,
Jean

Good Morning Everyone,

I love beautiful mornings like today. Windows open and a light breeze in the Midwest. I miss east coast.

Hi ga447,

Glad you are having such beautiful weather, too. Maybe you can come back to the east coast sometime.

Hi Marilyn+Jean, I've made veggie lasagna before, but never realized one could use sea food also. Sounds really good! Hope all who have been injured recently are healing well! ;). No more ouches, ok? Blessings to everyone, Carol

Hi Carol,
I have never used sea food in lasagna, either. It sure sounds good. I am healing up pretty good from my fall.
Bless to you and yours,
Marilyn

This sounds delicious. I love lasagna, but never put seafood in it. It will be a nice change. Thank you. ~Doreen

Hi Sue Ann and Doreen,
I will pass your comments on to Jean. I never would have thought of sea food in lasagna, but if Jean makes it, is delicious.

I made Edward's Strawberry Bread again this weekend for my friend who came to visit. She loved it and wanted the recipe too. I'm looking forward to his next one.

Hi Doreen,

I will tell Edward what you said. I am sure he will appreciate it. This next recipe is something different, too. I also know he and Jean are working on another recipe. His recipes are not written out, so they have to figure how to get them from his head to paper. Sometimes it's a fist of this, a pinch of that, etc. So they have to figure it out, then bake it to make sure they got it right. It takes them a while, but they get it done.

Tell Edward, I do a LOT of cooking that way!!! LOL!! It is the sign of a good cook! Or, so I have been told.....hahaha!

I will tell him SueAnn. That's the way his grandmother cooked and that's the way she taught him. Now is his and Jean's problem to get them down on paper, so we can all have them.
