  • It depends on how big the pan is, how many layers you are making. I usually use that for a 9x13 pan with 3 or 4 layers.

  • I usually do 3 layers and between 8-10 oz of mozzarella. I like mine really cheesy.

  • I was gonna ask how big is the pan. Sounds good though. I usually just eyeball my lasagna.

  • If it looks good it's probably right. This is one of those dishes I just layer together and don't measure. However, I do mix an egg into my ricotta, it makes it tase a lot better to me. (c:
