Crabby?

Does this heat make you as crabby as it makes me?

Are you tired of the regular lasagna with a jar of Ragu sauce and hamburger meat? How 'bout a crabmeat lasagna? This is a yummy lasagna that is good enough for company or to fill up a family of 8. It is easy to throw together, then takes an hour to bake. Serve it with a salad and some garlic bread. Crabmeat Lasagna
1 box lasagna noodles
1 can cream of shrimp soup
1# crabmeat
1 pint cottage cheese
8oz veggie cream cheese
1 egg
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 onion chopped
2 Tbs fresh basil
Combine soup, cream cheese, egg, and crab meat. In another bowl combine cheese, diced onion and basil. Precook noodles with olive oil, according to package directions. Lay noodles in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Cover with crab mixture, then cheese mixture. Repeat layers again. Bake at 350° for 1 hour. Let stand 10-15 minutes before to serving.

I like the Barilla noodles, they are thin sheets of pasta... almost like homemade.

Y'all enjoy!

I like these Barilla noodles, too. Using no-bake noodles has completely changed my approach to lasagna.

That's a different lasagna. Great idea.
Yes, you could say 104° leaves me crabby! Heck, it's 5am and 85° now. The only way to survive is A/C.

Thanks for visiting me ! I am so happy to find the Whistle Stop...(or maybe not because I am sure your recipes will add more pounds :) )

I'll be back to visit a lot I'm sure and ya'll come back to see me too.

Sounds good--and rich!

Never tried those noodles. Maybe I should.

rpm said...

Oh my goodness...that sounds wonderful. I will have to try this. Thanks for sharing!

Sally said...

Hell yes I'm crabby! But that lasagna sounds incredible.

TaunaLen said...

Oh my goodness, this sounds yummy! I can't wait to try it. But I'll be waiting until it cools down. 105 degrees outside means we eat cereal and sandwiches and the stove and oven stay OFF!

mykitcheninhalfcups must not live too far from me. We seem to be in the same weather holding pattern. HOTTER than HOT!

Thanks for a great recipe.
