Anyone have any awesome lasagna recipes? I like a lot of cheese… and just the right amount of ricotta.
I make for special occasions & holidays. Add a good green salad & bottle of vino & you are a super star!
12 Lasagna noodles
2 T. Butter
1 c. Onion, chopped
2 pkg. Cream cheese, softened
2 Eggs, beaten
2 c. Cottage cheese or Ricotta cheese
2-3 t. Dried basil
½ t. Salt & pepper
½ t. Nutmeg, grated (optional)
2 cans Cream of Mushroom soup
1/3 c. Milk
1/3 c. Dry White Wine
1-2 # Shrimp, cooked, peeled & halved
1 # Scallops, cooked
1# Crabmeat, fresh, rinsed & picked
½ c. Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
½ c. Provolone cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 350. Grease/Pam a 9x13” casserole dish. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain. Cover bottom of prepared casserole dish w/4 noodles. Cook onion in butter until tender, not brown. Blend in cream cheese. Stir in cottage cheese/ricotta, eggs, basil, nutmeg, salt & pepper. Mix completely. Spread 1/3 of this mixture over noodles in casserole dish. Combine soup, milk & wine. Sprinkle seafood w/a little lemon juice & fold into soup mixture. Spread 1/3 of this over cheese mixture & noodles in casserole dish. Repeat layers. Sprinkle top w/the Parmesan & Provolone cheeses. Set casserole on baking sheet and bake, uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
Serves: 8. Can prep day ahead or freeze. Worth the effort. Moderatly difficult. Sub seafoods for what is available.
