Lenten Lasagna

It’s that time of year when us Catholics abstain from meat on Fridays, so I’m always trying to find a fun new seafood (or meatless!) recipe. While I didn’t make this crab lasagna on a Friday, it was still a hit on Sunday!

  • Boil 9 lasagna noodles according to package directions.
  • IMG_0796In large bowl, combine…
    • 2 cans cream soup (your choice! I like onion, shrimp, or mushroom.)
    • 1 egg
    • 12 ounces cottage cheese (or ricotta if you prefer)
    • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    • 8 ounces crabmeat
    • 10 ounces frozen spinach, thawed and drained
    • 1 T. minced garlic
    • 1 t. Old Bay seasoning
    • Salt and pepper to taste
  • In a greased 9×13 casserole dish…
    • Place three lasagna noodles
    • Top with 1/3 of crab mix and 1/3 of an 8 oz bag of sharp cheddar cheese
    • Repeat, ending with crab mix and cheese
  • Bake at 350* for 45ish minutes. Allow to rest for 15 minutes before cutting and serving.

Not a beautiful picture, but it was a totally delicious meal! Keep an eye on the lasagna and cover with foil if it’s getting too brown. I didn’t make this ahead of time, but I don’t see any reason you couldn’t prep this one day and cook the next! Next time, remind me to chop up some green onions into the crab mix; they’re my favorite!
