Try this simple open faced Crayfish lasagna with asparagus and garlic.

This is barely a lasagna but since I used lasagna pasta and it is served in layers I still chose to call it a lasagna. You can of course serve it with regular pasta as well. I prepared all ingredients before cooking the pasta since the pasta is a central ingredient in the dish it would be ruined if it were to get overcooked. For the same reason it is not a good idea to make it like a regular style lasagna, the crayfish will get chewy and the asparagus overcooked.
