Seafood Pasta Bake Recipe

Seafood Pasta Bake

  • 12 ounces shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 6 ounces lump crabmeat
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 T butter
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1/4 C white wine
  • 1/4 C Italian parsley, chopped
  • Olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb penne pasta (or your favorite shape)
  • 1 1/2 C shredded Mozzarella cheese


  • 2 C heavy cream
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 ounces shredded Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to directions.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet and drizzle in some olive oil.  Cook the shallot until tender.  Deglaze the pan with the wine and cook a couple of minutes to reduce.  Add in the shrimp, crabmeat, parsley, and garlic and cook until the shrimp is pink and done, about 3-4 minutes.  Season with a bit of salt and pepper.  Squeeze the lemon over the seafood and remove from the heat.

For the Alfredo sauce, melt the butter in a saucepot.  Add in the cream and garlic and bring to a boil.  Remove from the heat and whisk in the Parmesan cheese, a little at a time, until completely melted and the sauce is thickened.

Preheat the broiler.  Mix the seafood and the sauce with the pasta.  Spread this into a casserole pan and sprinkle the Mozzarella all over the top.  Broil for a couple of minutes to melt and brown the cheese.
