This isn't period Italian, is it? In that case - if
your transport arrangements allow it - how about ices?
A lovely homemade citrus granita or berry sorbet, or
maybe a rich ice cream - poppyseed is always a popular
flavour, or vanilla, of course. Ice scales well, and
unless you have industrial-strength freezers, it is
mostly for small numbers of people. 

If you're just looking for something that matches
lasagna in flavour and feel rather than specifically
an Italian dish - in winter I love to serve what I
have come to know as Swedish waffles. A waffle (the
round European kind if you can get them), preferably
fresh, but always warm, lightly dusted with powdered
sugar, and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream
and a tablespoonful of hot berry sauce. Not terribly
Italian, but worth breaking the rules for. 

And don't the Italians also make mousse?
