How Much Lasagna To Serve Per Person

Lasagna Portion Size Per Person As Main Course

If lasagna is being served as the main course, you should plan on a portion size of 8 ounces per person.  This would equal approximately 1 1/2 cups.  This would equal roughly 1/6th of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.  A 9 x 13 inch baking pan holds 6 portions per person when served as a main course.  In comparison, Stouffer’s party size lasagna averages to about 7.5 ounces per serving, which is offered in a 10 x 12 inch pan.

Portion sizes are based on adult servings.

If lasagna is being served as a side dish or if it is being offered at a buffet where there are other pasta or starch dishes for guests to choose from, you should plan on having 3.5 ounces of lasagna per person.

When Would Lasagna Be Considered A Side Dish

A side dish is food served along with the main course. The main course, usually a protein, is the featured item and side dishes compliment the main course.

Lasagna would be considered a side dish if you were also serving a standard portion size (6-8 oz) of meat such as  chicken breast, sausage or steak.
