how much


Question by  kmac (235)

How much pasta should I cook for 100 people?


Answer by  drew76 (146)

Eight to ten pounds should be enough for 100 people (about four 13X9 pans). You could cook less if serving other things; they won't take as much pasta.

A good rule of thumb to go by is about a little less than 1/4 a pound per person. That's what they do in Italy.

It is normally considered a "serving" if you cook 4 ounces of pasta per person. Therefore, you need 400 ounces which translates into 25 lbs. Of course, some recipes use pasta - such as a salad - as a minor ingredient and then you would probably use half the amount as you would for a spaghetti dinner.
