We’re always asked what we make for our big Christmas meal. There’s a tradition at Christmas called the Feast of the Seven Fishes when Catholics refrain from eating meat and dairy products. Well, one out of two ain’t bad! One year Mom took crabmeat, lobster and shrimp and made a lasagna with our Vodka sauce. As you might imagine, this was a BIG hit that first Christmas Eve. Now we enjoy this decadent dish much more often than just once a year and we think you will too!
