OK. For normal eaters, 1 pound pasta plus one quart sauce plus 1/2 to 1 pound cheese per pound. his fills a 9x13 pan.

1 large eggplant makes 4 people's worth, so you may want o increase.

Be sure you have excellent bread, including some gluten=free labelled. Consider using Panko bread crumbs, they add wonderful crunch.

YOU CAN WRITE BACK. If I have saved you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation to support the site. Thank you.
