  4. Slowly add the milk, ½c. at a time whisking constantly to make smooth.
  5. Reduce heat to medium-low and add cheese. Stir in salt/pepper. soon as it is almost melted, remove pan from heat and let cool a bit.

  1. Heat oil in a grill pan.
  2. Season shrimp generously and cook until both sides are golden.
  3. Let cool and cut into bite sized pieces.
Assembly
  1. I used this recipe to make one 8x8 lasagna and one 11x7. One we kept and one we gifted to my parents! You can, instead, make one 9x13 lasagna if you prefer.
  2. Oil the bottom of each pan with a little olive oil. Lay 2 noodles on the bottom.
  3. Top with half the spinach artichoke mixture and dot the top with shrimp pieces.
  4. Lay on 2 more noodles and the rest of the mixture, then shrimp.
  5. Top with 2 more noodles.
  6. Cover the top with the cheeses.
  7. When ready to make, dollop on a few circles of sauce and sprinkle on parmesan.
  8. Bake covered at 350 for 30 mins.
  9. Remove foil and broil the top until golden-watch it closely!! The broiling happens fast.
  10. Serve with more parmesan cheese and some parsley!
