Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse scallops well and drain, if using regular scallops, cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a 12 to 14-inch frying pan.
  3. Add onion, garlic and thyme; stir on medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add scallops; cook, stirring often, until they are opaque in the center (cut to test), 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat; pour scallops into a large strainer pos itioned over a bowl; let drain for 20 to 30 minutes.
  5. In the same frying pan, melt remaining butter on medium heat. Add flour and stir until it turns a light golden color.
  6. Remove from heat; smoothly mix in broth, cream and vermouth.
  7. Return to high heat; bring to a boil, stirring and set aside. Fill a 4 to 5-quart pan 3/4 full with water and bring to boiling over high heat. Add lasagna to water and boil, uncovered, until tender to bite, about 10 minutes; drain.
  8. Rinse lasagna with cold water until cool; drain again and set aside. Pour scallop juices into a 1 to 1 1/2-quart pan; boil on high heat, uncovered, until reduced to about 2 tablespoons; stir near the end to keep juices from scorching.
  9. Mix juices with cream sauce. Line bottom of a 9 x 12-inch buttered baking pan or dish with 1/3 of the lasagna noodles.
  10. Spread noodles with 1/3 of the sauce; top with 1/3 of the scallops, then with 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat layers twice more, ending with cheese on top.
  11. Cover pan with a lid or foil; if made ahead, chill up to 1 day, then bring to room temperature. Bake lasagna in a 350 degrees oven for 20 minutes.
  12. Remove foil and bake until cheese is golden, about 20 minutes longer.
  13. Let stand 15 minutes to firm before cutting; lift out portions with a wide spatula.
  14. Makes 12 servings as a first course, 6 as an entree.
