Shrimp Scampi Lasagna

Shrimp Scampi Lasagna

This comfort food recipe is pure heaven…decadent, delicious Shrimp Scampi Lasagna!

Since my daughter moved back from college, she has been craving lasagna.

However, she is allergic to tomatoes so I have been on a mission to create many varieties of alfredo based lasagnas for her.

Sometimes I struggle with keeping things simple in the kitchen which is both a gift and a curse sometimes.

I kept dreaming about adding different veggies, different seafoods, etc.

In the end I kept it simple with basic shrimp scampi and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

It was perfect!

How to make Shrimp Scampi Lasagna

This is a pound and a half of jumbo shrimp that I cut into thirds.

Also a bunch of green onions that I minced.

shrimp and green onions

Cook the green onions and shrimp with butter in a skillet over medium heat.

Oh, and LOTS of garlic! Simply seasoned with kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.

It only takes a few minutes to cook perfectly, once the shrimp are pink all the way through they are done.

Barilla Oven Ready Lasagna sheets are the way to go here.

No boiling the sheets ahead of time and plus they taste amazing.

Start with a layer of alfredo sauce first to prevent sticking.

Then your first layer of lasagna sheets go down.

Mix together some ricotta cheese with pesto and spread 1/3 of that mixture down first.

Then a layer of the shrimp scampi.

Shredded mozzarella cheese and alfredo sauce go down next.

First layer is done!

Repeat the remaining two layers.

Then top it off with the lasagna sheets and more alfredo over top.

Most people bake their lasagnas in the oven, I prefer to cook mine on my Traeger Pellet Grill/Smoker.

If you are baking this, put in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Then top with more mozzarella cheese and bake for 15 more minutes.

If you are a Traeger owner, put it on the smoke setting to start for 30 minutes.

Then crank the heat to 375 for 30 minutes.

This is what it will look like after 30 minutes.

You can almost see that smoke flavor 🙂

  1. Set a large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and once it's melted add the minced green onions. Cook 1 minute and add the shrimp, garlic, kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes. Cook 3 minutes or until the shrimp are cooked though.

  4. Evenly spread 1/3 of the cooked shrimp, 1/4 of the mozzarella cheese, and 1/4 of the alfredo sauce. Repeat until you have three layers of lasagna, pressing down after each layer slightly.

  5. Top the lasagna with the 4 remaining lasagna sheets, evenly spread the remaining alfredo sauce over top.
