Easy Creamy Seafood Lasagna - Family Fresh Meals recipe

Fun fact: Nearly one in four Americans are Catholic. And since Catholics can’t eat meat on Fridays during Lent – but can eat fish – that adds up to a lot of fish being sold during this season. Stores all over the country have great sales on seafood, and normally pricey treats like shrimp and crabmeat are available at bargain prices.

So basically, even for those of us who aren’t Catholic, this is a great time of year to try out new seafood recipes. And it’s healthy, too!

So, in honor of this season of seafood, I decided to try a fish-based version of that classic Italian treat, lasagna.

Easy Seafood Lasagna recipe - Family Fresh Meals Recipe


First, I swapped out the ground beef for a mixture of luscious shrimp and crabmeat. Then, since a hearty red sauce would drown out the more delicate flavors of the seafood, I replaced it with a basic white sauce with a touch of parmesan. And I skipped the zesty basil and oregano in favor of chopped parsley, which complements the fishy flavors.

Eating lasagna this way will make you see this classic recipe with new eyes. It’s a deliciously different twist on your grandma’s lasagna that will make you fall in love with this old favorite all over again.
