It varies somewhat based on the age of the group and what else you are serving. Assuming young and hungry and not too many other dishes.

1 pound dry pasta per 4
use the Alfredo style sauce recipe on the spaghetti page, and read that page for help on cooking, storing, and reheating. There are a lot of tricks to this much pasta.
30 pounds boneless raw chicken meat per 100
12-15 pounds Italian bread per 100.
1 ounce Parm per person.

Salads are on the plan for 100 page.

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