Giant Frozen Lasagna Recipe | with Gift Printable

by Maria

This gooey, cheesy giant frozen lasagna cooks to perfection every time. It is my go-to heart-felt comfort meal to share with others in a time of need.  Perfect for a food train of any kind, so I added a “with love” printable. Now you can bake (easy, few ingredients) and put it all together with a reheat instruction label in one step.

WHY WE NEED THE FOOD TRAIN

When hard times hit someone, there can be a  ripple effect of emotions in friends and family. Besides empathy, there is a need to help and a sense of reflection of our own circumstances.  A friend of mine, who I love so dearly, just lost a parent unexpectedly.  It got me thinking about the food train that often follows, and how as a friend I feel like I want to do something. Even though she doesn’t really need anything at all.  Not finding a recipe and printable on Pinterest, I created the Giant Frozen Lasagna recipe and printable (for all hardships) below. 

  • Food Train
  • Surgery
  • Death in the Family
  • Funeral Food
  • Busy Season
  • Illness in Family
  • Visiting Seniors

 

COMFORTING WITH FOOD

If I don’t know what to do, I cook for people. I still remember the people who sent food or flowers before my dad’s funeral. I remember who came out to be with me or attend. That was more than 15 years ago. Those little gestures matter and may still in your friend’s heart forever as mine have.

And back to my point send a frozen giant lasagna, the ultimate comfort food. To be cooked and eaten any day that there is nothing left in the refrigerator. Reheated to perfection and ready to please a crowd, this cheesy pasta dish will take the edge of almost any bad day.

In the end, a lasagna says I took the time to care about you. It feeds a family for a night or two, and it can’t stop the pain. That is enough for you to do if nothing else is asked.

GRIEF AND CARING

“If you are not in the arena also getting your ass kicked, I’m not interested in your feedback”. – Brene Brown

Since you’re here and we are talking about grief of all kinds,  I love this quote from Brene Brown. The best thing to say to a friend in need is “what can i do to support you?” Just provide what it is they have requested. Less is more in these times.
