That was nice of your daughter to think about you.
I like lasagna, but when it comes to making it, I think oooo that makes so much. We made pans of lasagna for a party once, that worked ok. Funny though, when I think of pastitsio or moussaka, somewhat related style dishes, made in the same size pan, that doesn't seem as much, even with leftovers.
Overall, I have to group anything in a 9 X 13 pan in the same "food group" as a ham and the in-laws. Good for three days and then you'r outta here.
We always used cottage cheese instead of ricotta but since discovering that, now I use a good ricotta that we get at an Italian market.
