Please spell out, put some commas in, and tell me whether you are asking about the appetizers also; I can't make all this out. Also, tell me whether the ziti has meat, and why you are planning 2 pasta plus potatoes?

Thanks, that made a big difference.

chicken broccoli ziti- about 18 servings per pan. Since you have chicken and potatoes elsewhere, no more than 3
cheese lasagna- about 24 servings per pan. 2 is enough- none left

marinated chicken tips (breast chunks)- 1 pound raw chicken per 4, 1 pound cooked per 5
pork shoulder meat- 1 pound cooked per 5
meatballs- 1 pound per 6 if they are 1 ounce size or less

roasted potatoes- for 100, you may have some left

You need to add veg and/or salad, and I would add fruit trays as well; this is a very heavy, monochrome meal.

cheese,1 pound per 12
pepperoni, 1 pound per 12-15, is this popular in your area, or are there a lot of teens? Use the larger amount
cracker tray, 8 pounds

veggie tray, see veggie tray page, I would probably make this a fruit tray and add a veg or salad to the dinner
chips and dip; 1 pound chips per 12, 1 cup dip per 6-8- more if thicker, less if thinner.

If this saves you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation, maybe a dime per person, to support this site.
