For a twist on the normal lasagna I made this seafood one. It’s quickly become one of our new favorites! I would maybe add a few more shrimp and you can add other seafood or just more of what you love. We did add a little more seasoning to it since we like spice, but the flavor is really good and it’s easy to toss together.
