Around 200 calories per ounce. Actually, one ounce of dry pasta has 100 calories. Pasta doubles it's weight when cooked in water (0 calories). Therefor, cooked pasta has 50 calories per ounce.
i am making baked spagetti using penne pasta and need to feed 50. how much pasta do i buy
For Small pasta, like macaroni, 50 grams. More for smaller pasta, less for larger.
I would use 50 packages of noodles but everyone in my family is over 500 pounds
It will take about 50 lbs of pasta to feed 200 people
For westerners, 1 cup of rice per person (cooked rice) is standard. 1/2 cup of uncooked rice, generally, makes 1 cup of cooked rice. So 100 cups of cooked rice, cooked from 50 cups of uncooked rice.
A typical serving of pasta is 2 ounces of pasta and 1/4 cup of sauce. However, most Americans consume more than the standard size. I would double it to 4 ounces of pasta and 1/2 of sauce per serving. Therefore, I'd use 25 cups of sauce to feed 50 people, however, you may want to add another 5 cups just to be on the safe side.
i would say around fifty cups. because there are pigs that will want to eat like 5 cups, but not everyone likes pasta salad, most people don't. lots of people will take some though even if they don't like it but they wont take a cup.
