Extremely Delicious Lasagna with Salmon Recipe

One of the most colorful heroes of olden times is Marco Polo, a great adventurer and excellent businessperson. Like many celebrities of yore, there is quite a bit of mystique to be taken with a grain of salt. Some history books tell of his wonderful contribution to Italian cuisine by bringing pasta back from China on one of his journeys to that far and distant land. Another version of the pasta story talks about finding a food in China that was popular in Italy centuries before, when the Romans were in control of the land, but lost from the culinary offerings of Polo’s time.

Actually, pasta was alive and well during the time of Marco Polo and the durum wheat noodle that he brought back was similar to those cooked in an oven during ancient Rome’s glory, rather than boiled like pasta has been for many centuries. There were different types of tea, spices, and silks that returned with Polo, but lasagna had yet to become known. In our time, a pasta shortage is a reality.

Americans truly love pasta and Italians love it more. Whereas Americans consume about twenty pounds of pasta per person each year, Italians exceed sixty pounds each. There are good farms in that country but the pasta demands exceed the wheat that available to make pasta. Italy has to import quite a great deal of wheat to fill the pasta gap for their meals. The pasta is fresh or dried and the type of meal being cooked determines whether pasta will be used fresh or dried. Many nations have turned their farmlands into cement housing and that creates a problem with producing enough pasta for everyone. Continue reading

Sensational Lasagna with Salmon, Leeks and Shrimp

This flavorful seafood lasagna is made with salmon and shrimp, as well as a creamy tomato and herb sauce. If you are in the mood for the best lasagna recipe but you crave seafood rather than meat, no problem – this recipe will satisfy your hunger completely.

Choose skinless, boneless salmon filets for the best results, running your fingertips along the salmon to check for any little bones. Sometimes you can find little bones in a filet even though they are meant to be boneless. With the shrimps it is best to choose medium-size ones. Little ones can go rubbery in the oven and huge ones will look out of proportion in the finished seafood lasagna recipe.

Use medium shrimp and cook them until they are just pink. You can swap the Havarti for mozzarella if you prefer, or even half cheddar and half mozzarella. Similarly, the leeks can be swapped for broccoli or spinach. Continue reading

Chilled Appetizer Mandarin Shrimp Lasagna with Beets

Lasagna is usually a hot dish which is baked in the oven and served as an entree, between the appetizers and the dessert. However, what about if you like the concept of sandwiching a filling between lasagna sheets (or something else) for an appetizer or dessert? The good news is there are appetizer lasagna recipes and dessert lasagna recipes as well as the more traditional ones. Take the following appetizer lasagna recipe for example. Using beets instead of pasta keeps this lasagna light and healthy and adding a chilled shrimp filling gives it a gourmet touch. You can cook your own beets or use ones from a jar; use them as they are or trim them into rectangles. You can drain the slices on paper towels if you do not want a lot of juice.

This is a simple recipe, combining thin slices of beets with a creamy shrimp and mandarin orange mixture. It is light, refreshing and makes a wonderful appetizer. Purists might argue that a lasagna has to contain lasagna noodles and if you like you can replace the beets with those. Boil them first and when they are tender use them in place of the beets. This will make the appetizer heavier but more like a traditional lasagna recipe.

The garnish for this seafood lasagna is up to you. In the recipe we have suggested lemon, chives, and a spoonful of pesto but you can add tomato wedges, fresh parsley or basil, cocktail onions or anything else you want. This is a modern, creative appetizer so feel free to put your own stamp on it and make it as decorative and unique as you like. Continue reading

Shrimp Lasagna with Vegetable

Lasagna can be made in numerous ways and this way is one very healthy recipe. Shrimp is good for us with very little fat and tons of protein, and we all know how good vegetables are for us, and that we should be eating a minimum of three to five servings of vegetables and fruits daily. A delicious shrimp and veggie lasagna can be a healthier choice for a meal than traditional lasagna which is typically high in both calories and fat.

Even if you are not necessarily a seafood lover per se, there is a good chance you might like shrimp, as it is a very popular seafood choice. It is tasty but not overpowering as some seafood can be. If you happen to be a vegetarian, this is one dish you will want to experiment with and could possibly become one of your favorites.

If you do not do much cooking and think this may be too difficult to make, rest assured that it will not be too hard if you just have all the ingredients you need on hand. Continue reading
