Baylor University Dining Services will attempt to bake the world's largest Italian casserole during the Mama Mia Italian Festival from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3, at the SUB Bowl on the Baylor campus.

If they are successful, the lasagna dish will be entered into the 2004 Guinness Book of World Records.

The casserole will be baked in a 250-pound pan that is 8 feet in diameter and 15 inches deep. The final product, which will weigh more than 100 pounds, will be assembled and heated all day outside of the Bill Daniel Student Center on Fifth Street.

The festival also will feature the Baylor Spaghetti Showdown, during which area pasta vendors will compete in a taste-off competition in two categories, Student's Favorite and Judge's Choice. Other activities include a "Heart and Sole" Grape Stomp with more than 1,500 pounds of grapes, "Lady and the Tramp" pictures, "Picture Perfect" painting and a special improv comedy performance by the Baylor Guerrilla Troupe.

The Mama Mia Italian Festival is free and open to the Baylor community. For more information, contact the Baylor Activities Council at 710-1560 or visit the BAC web site.
