lasagna math--cooking for 15

Isolda | Sep 19, 2012 09:42 AM

I've been charged with preparing lasagna for a dinner serving four homeless families. I need to make enough to feed 15 people, including 5 children, ages 4-9 :( I was thinking of doing just one almighty lasagna in my small All-Clad roasting pan. It has handles and is easy to transport, in spite of the fact that it is wicked heavy even when empty.

My other option is to just use two of those disposable lasagna pans. Any thoughts? Any idea of proportions?

I was going with 1 lb ground beef, 1 lb sausage, 1 lb ricotta, 1 box lasagna noodles, and about 2 lbs tomatoes, along with the seasonings, garlic, onions, cheese, etc. Will this be enough or do you think I should increase quantities? They can't have leftovers, as there is no place to store them, and others are in charge of subsequent meals for the families in the program.
