Spice it up with this Cajun Shrimp Lasagna! This spicy Southern seafood lasagna will blow your mind.

Get ready for this Southern twist on lasagna. Shrimp is the star of this seafood pasta with lots of cheese and homemade Southern tomato sauce. That’s what I mean when I say something is made from scratch with love!

Lasagna noodles are a huge time saver in this lasagna dish. You just put them all in, hard, and they’re perfectly cooked. It’s kind of weird. If you can’t find oven-safe lasagna noodles, you’ll have to use regular lasagna noodles, precooked in boiling water according to package directions.

instruct

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, bell peppers and celery. Saute until tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Add garlic and cajun seasoning. Toast for 1 minute. Pour in the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste and sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.

  • In a mixing bowl, combine cheddar, jack, and mozzarella cheese. Toss to combine. In another mixing bowl, combine the ricotta, Parmesan, eggs, Cajun seasoning, and a handful of the shredded cheese mixture. Stir well.

  • Cut the shrimp into small pieces. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add cajun seasoning.

  • Assemble the lasagna: Spread a tablespoon of the sauce on the bottom of a lightly greased 9×13 pan. Create a single layer of lasagna noodles, overlapping each by about 1 inch. Cover with 1/3 of the sauce. Spread half of the ricotta mixture on top. Top with half the shrimp and a handful of shredded cheese. Repeat to make another layer of noodles, sauce, ricotta, shrimp, and cheese. Top with the last layer of noodles, remaining sauce, and remaining shredded cheese.

  • Cover the pan with foil and bake in a 375 degree oven for 40 minutes. Remove foil and cook for another 20 minutes, until cheese is hot and bubbling.
