You can use a favorite recipe-divide the number of servings for each ingredient in your recipe to find the amount of each ingredient for a single serving, then multiply each single serving ingredient amount by 200.

There are all kinds of online recipe sites that have these recipes. I can't remember where all I looked. I had to do this for my grandaughters graduation last spring. All I did was look for the amount of pasta and then added larger amounts of the ususal ingredients that I normally add for smaller amounts of pasta salad. One site that I look at quite often is recipeczar.com.

I know the ingredients, the thing is how much pasta for 200.

Alot of the receipes say 8 oz. no way will that handle. I want to know how many pound boxes of pasta I would need. I planned to mix similiar to above receipe, but amounts is the problem.

I need help estimating the cost of and ingredients needed for a salad for 50. I will be making it with a romaine and iceberg lettuce mix, shredded carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes and salad dressing.

Plan on 5 heads of Iceberg and 5 heads of Romaine. Restaurants only put a small portion of the other veggies in/on top of a salad so plan on 5 medium carrots (or less because shredded carrots are mainly for the color), 10 medium cucumbers and 12 small firm ripe tomatoes. Plan to place the dressings on the side. Four or five flavor choices and one bottle of each flavor should be just fine because a little dressing goes a long way ;-)

Cut the lettuce yourself (for freshness and to save money), cut the tomatoes in to 8 wedges each (about 4 wedges per salad) and the cucumbers sliced and halved (about 4 to 8 halves per salad depending on the slice size).

The cost is going to depend on the season and your area so go to the market and price your heads of lettuce, weigh the amounts of the other veggies and calculate ;-) Of course, peruse your salad dressing isle and add those to the calculation too.

Oh, and don't add the tomatoes and cucumbers until the very last minute or they will affect the crispness of the lettuce! You can premix the lettuce and carrots though ;-)

Hope this is helpful :-)

I believe that I would call one of the Larger Churches there in Nashville. The ones that serve meals on Wednesday nights.

The person who plans and prepares those meals for such a large crowd would probably be glad to help you with the amounts you would need to buy to feed 50 people. And could probably tell you the best place to purchase your veggies too.
