How much pasta is needed for a crowd?
Also to know is, how many boxes of pasta do I need for 50 people?
To use this food quantity chart:
|Food Type||Approximate Amount for 50 Servings||Serving Size Per Person|
|Cooked, oatmeal, grits||about 2 gals. cooked (app. 2 lbs dry)||2/3 cup|
|Cold||app. 5 boxes||½-1 cup|
|Coffee Cake||4 8" bundt cakes||1 regular slice|
|Pasta, as side dish, spaghetti, macaroni, noodles||4-5 16 oz. pkgs.||1/2 cup, cooked|
Likewise, how much pasta do you need per person? For small portions, for a starter, allow 50g dried or 90g fresh pasta per person. For normal portions, for a lunch with a salad, say, cook 70-80g dried or 100-110g fresh pasta per person.
