We consider the following Dirichlet problem
$\left\{ \begin{matrix} -\Delta u=\lambda f(u)\ \ \ \ \text{in}\ \Omega \\ u=0\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \text{on}\ \partial \Omega \\\end{matrix} \right.,\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \left( \mathcal{P}_{f}^{\lambda } \right)$
with
$ \lambda<0 $
and
$ f $
non-negative and non-decreasing.
We show existence and uniqueness of solutions
$ u_\lambda $
for any
$ \lambda $
and discuss their asymptotic behavior as
$ \lambda\to-\infty $
. In the expansion of
$ u_\lambda $
large solutions naturally appear.
