    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.

    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.
