Alfredo for 300

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Main ingredients in recipe I want to use:

1/2 C Butter
2 C Cream
1/4 C Parmesan Cheese
12 oz. Fettuccine

Recipe says will serve 3 (I'm not so sure)

How much of each would I need for 300?

Looking at it I think the pasta might be off in 2 ways: 

First, 4 oz pasta per person seems a bit light, more like 6oz? 

If so that would yield 2 servings per your "batch" not 3, or maybe more like 2.5.

Second, that should yield about 2 1/2 cups of sauce, which might service more thatn 12 oz. 

To be safe, figuring say 3 servings per pound of pasta, that's what 33 pounds of pasta. 

Best to make final adjustments during prep before serving.

Sounds about right to me, I usually figure 4 people to a pound pf pasta

Assuming that you go with their yield of 3 people, then for 300, it would be ingredients times 100.

25# Butter
12.5 G Cream
6.25# Parmesan Cheese
75#. Fettuccine

I would make a few extra pounds and some extra sauce. You'll probably end up with a few extra mouths to feed or at least a couple of second helpings. Don't know anyone who doesn't like that dish.
