This Seafood Lasagna recipe is perfect for seafood lovers. So rich and creamy, this is not diet food!
Someone told me this was a popular recipe in the 80’s, a bit before my cooking time. I think that Campbell’s Soup recipes were more popular when I was growing up. I think people prefer fresh simple and fresh over processed and convenient.
That being said, this is still a comfort food recipe that tastes amazing. Campbell’s soup base recipes are fast, flavorful and convenient. Many Seafood Lasagna Alfredo recipes are made with a white sauce or béchamel sauce. The mushroom soup base is a great replacement for the Alfredo.
What Goes Good with Seafood Lasagna?
The hero of this dinner recipe is the lasagna. I just serve it along side a leafy green salad with my homemade Italian salad dressing. Making a Cheesy Pull-Apart Garlic bread is perfect accompaniment to eat with this dinner. It’s like a fancy garlic bread that tastes great too.
I use imitation crab in this seafood lasagna recipe. Imitation Crab is usually made from pollock or white fish. You could use real crab or substitute with a few cans of canned crab. The scallops are optional because they can be expensive, but are worth it if you can! Here in Australia, you can buy a thawed Seafood Marinara mix from the deli. It’s a mixture of shrimp, calamari, mussels and fish. This would in this recipe, but I don’t like the chewiness of the calamari.
Can Seafood Lasagna be frozen?
Yes. You can make this in advance and freeze it. I recommend cover it tightly with plastic wrap and then foil before freezing. I wouldn’t keep it in the freezer longer than 4 weeks, I hate frozen food that starts to get freezer burn!
This Easy Seafood Lasagna is made with mushroom soup, shrimp, scallops and imitation crab. Rich and creamy family dinner favorite. Bon Appetit! Приятного аппетита!
