Italian main dish that holds well

chowser | | Dec 8, 2010 12:02 PM

My Italian class is having a potluck luncheon at an adult ed place where we'll have class first and then eat. I've volunteered to bring a main course. My fall back will be lasagna w/ home made noodles and bechamel but I'd love to do something else. I have a thermal container for a 9x13 pyrex container w/ heatable gel pack so I can keep it somewhat warm but most dishes I'm thinking of don't hold well. I also have a crockpot. I would love to do sweet potato gnocchi w/ pancetta in a brown butter sage sauce but think that'll get gummy over a couple of hours (at least). I've read that pizza rustica is good served room temperature but have only had it hot. Anyone have ideas? I like to cook/bake but it's so busy this time of year that the most time I'd want to spend is about the time it takes to make lasagna from scratch, if that helps.
