Spice a mix of Ricotta and Parmesan cheeses (and a couple of egg yolks), with oregano, thyme and a touch of dill.
Cook shrimp and prepare to grind.
A splash of rum and or tawny port adds a touch of "brown" flavor.
An egg yolk or two will help bind the shrimp mixture.
Add enough cream to the shrimp so it will grind smoothly.
Layer noodles, cheese, Bechamel (see "How to") and then shrimp.
The shrimp mixture should be smooth and spread easily.
For the final layer, top with noodles, and Bechamel…
Finish with shredded Sharp White Cheddar cheese.
Bake until brown. Serve or cool and reheat.
Lasagna is a noodle, not a dish, so feel free to explore the possibilities (in Italy lasagna is often used in a soup).
Shrimp is everyone’s favorite (beware of allergies, ask your guests first). Cook, grind, flavor with a splash of brown booze, and then layer with cheese mix, to produce a subtle, but delightful baked pasta dish that people will long remember.
