An all-time favorite, never fails me, open to substitution(don't have crab? try halibut, tilapia, any other firm white fish). This dish always gets raves and requests for recipe. My go-to for seafood lasagna.

Well liked by very discerning seafood guests -they'd 5* it, I liked it but rate it at 4*. I followed the recipe, it did take time and cost to prepare - both contributed to my selection as 4*. I would certainly make it again for special seafood appreciating guests - it smelled, presented and handled well.

Yuck. The flavor of the crab is overwhelming. It is also a bit too dry.

Agreed this was a very time-consuming recipe. Made as described, used a bit more shrimp and a little less of everything to as to fit an 8x8 pan (there's only 2 of us at home). Used feta for cheese and whole wheat noodles for lasagna. Delicious, but a bit too time consuming to become a standard for me. EVEN BETTER when reheated as leftovers, which surprised me, a leftover hater. Recommended if you have the time and energy.

I made this for a Palm Sunday dinner and my family LOVED it. I give it 4 stars because it was a LOT of work. I thought everyone else was exaggerating but it really was a lot of work. That said it is definitely only a special occasion dish. I would recommend adding an extra can or two of crabmeat because I couldn't even tell it was in there after everything was mixed together. Also, I substituted the cottage cheese with reduced fat ricotta because I just couldn't fathom putting cottage cheese into a lasagna. It turned out beautiful! I will definitely make for another special occasion.

This is a great addition to our lasagna recipes. This dish does leave a number of dishes to wash though.

My spouse and I don't like shrimp, so I substituted mussels and cut so they were bite-sized. Also, used seafood broth from Kitchen Basics to short cut the boiling of the shrimp shells. Otherwise, I followed the recipe and it has turned out well every time I make it.
