Lana are you making both at the same time? For main dish servings for 50 people, you want about 6 pounds of dry pasta.

Julie are you serving rigatoni as a main course and spaghetti salad as the side dish at the same meal? Are you serving the hot dogs at the same meal? (I would skip the hotdogs and serve meatballs for meatball subs). Write back.

Quanity to cook for 125 guests
I am cooking for the County Humane Society Golf Outing in two weeks. Could you please help guide me with a quanity for the following items. This will be served buffet style.
Rigatoni, Sausage & Peppers, Herbed Chicken Breasts and Thighs, Green Beans. Red Potatos.

If the rigatoni is a side dish, 8-10 pounds dry for 100. Grren beans 22 pounds ready to eat for 100. Red potatoes, 35 pounds for 100. If you expect people to want the chicken and sausage equally for 125 people, you want about 75 servings of each (people eat more, and some of each, when multiple are available. If you want to figure generally, 5-6 ounces cooked ready to eat chicken PLUS 3 ounces suasage per person.

7 to 8 times the amounts for the 50-60- dinner; the klesser if you are serving plates and not sure if you will get all 400; the greater if it is buffet or you are sure of your numbers. Offer also take away trays at the end, you can get the aluminum disposables with lids at the warehouse stores. Good luck! We just raised $3000 with a dinner and silent auction for a friend in the same situation. I support universal health care and the public option, and I'm a nurse.

See the lotsa pasta page. At the bottom there is a guide for 50-60, for a wedding you would do 2 times to 2 1/2 times this plan. All kinds of cooked vegetables on the main plan for 100 page. I would do an antipasto type salad and a second veggie- eggplant casserole, maybe, or a great minestrone soup.

Consult your deli, then add 10% to what they say. They know how big their pans are, and I don't.

See the spaghetti page and use the meal for 50-60 at the bottom of the page to help you with quantities. It's a hard time. Take care of each other.
