At the bottom of the spaghetti page there is a dinner for 50-60 (50 self serve, 60 plates), for guidance on amounts.

30-40 pounds raw boneless chicken,
20-24 pound thin spaghetti, broken into 2-inch pieces
50 cups (12 1/2 pounds) shredded sharp Cheddar- you can use other cheese combos, some people people use velveeta or other process cheese

3 tablespoons seasoned salt
1 to 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper or 1/2 cup taco seasoning
1/4 cup Italian herb mix
20 family size cans cream of mushroom soup plus 20 cups chicken broth (you can also use 1 1/2 times my alfredo style sauce for 100, on the spaghetti page)

6-7 pounds onion, finely diced
3 pounds celery, finely diced, optional
5 cups finely diced green bell pepper
5 cups finely diced red bell pepper
Some recipes use salsa or rotel tomatoes for part of your veggies and sauce

This will be part of a two pasta dinner the other being chicken parm over spaghetti. What would the cook time/temp on these be if I were using 1/2 pans and full pans? Thank you, Andrea.

I'm sorry, I'm not clear. Are you making the chicken spaghetti ahead and reheating it? For full half pans, preheat 20 minutes to 350, Bake, uncovered for 30 / 35 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
WARNING/ ALERT TRIPLE cooking time if dish has been refrigerated or chilled. ALWAYS Use oven thermometer or instant read thermometer to check that temperature in the middle is 160 degrees.

If this is a buffet, do 1 1/2 times the spaghetti dinner for 50-60 at the bottom of the spaghetti page. If it is plated do 1 1/3 times.

How do I break down your chicken spaghetti recipe to feed 100 people. I see the regular spaghetti recipe however I don't see the chicken spaghetti recipe with Rotal tomatoes......
Would you have a recipe I can use ?

Take a look at the baked spaghetti casserole here for guidance on basic amounts

www.ellenskitchen.com/bigpots/bbentree1.html

I have used Rotel tomatoes and chicken in this- about 15 whole chickens for really meaty choice for 100. In Texas, these tomatoes show up oftten.

When dealing with spaghetti for 50, this is my seat of the pants quantity guide:

Spaghetti with meat sauce
10 pounds spaghetti
10-12 quarts spaghetti sauce
8-10 pounds hamburger or meatballs (or 8 chickens cut up -64 pieces- browned and braised)
3 pounds shredded or grated Parmesan or domestic Asiago cheese for topping

You can write back. If I have saved you time, trouble or money, please make a donation to support the site. Thank you.
