Spaghetti ?

How do you figure out how much spaghetti to make per individual ?

It's best to base portions on your own experience of what you consider to be a generous but not overwhelming amount.  How many servings do you normally get out of a 1# box of pasta?

 

As a more general rule of thumb, 4oz of dry spaghetti per adult is not particularly generous, but 6oz is.

I am not a big eater and I use about a 1 inch diameter bundle for myself.

And don't forget that it matters a lot how you serve your spaghetti.

4 oz is barely enoughif you serve it with a watery marinara or if you serve it plain with only melted butter/or oil..

The same 4 oz can be satisfying if you serve it with a thick meaty bolognese where you added some Italian Sausage to make it more hearty with plenty of cheese on top.
