Author Notes

My family always loved the basic lasagna recipe I would prepare for special occasions and holidays, so one year I decided to overhaul the recipe completely and give them all something to talk about, so out the window went the ground beef and tomato sauce replaced with a rich and creamy Alfredo sauce and loads of fresh seafood. —Adrian V.
