Pasta for 250 (1st Timer)

1st Attempt to cook for crowd.

Alfredo (Side dish)
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 as an entree. (I am serving as a side dish)

Please help me determine exact amounts of each ingredient for 250 people.
I made one batch and it seems like a LOT more than 3.

Also, because of prep and serving I thought I might use Penne pasta rather than Fettuccine.

Any help appreciated. 1st timer, don't want to flop.

The last time I answered your question, my answer was based on you saying the recipe served 3 as an entree and you were looking to serve 300. My answer was based on 3x100=300 and the cream amount in my answer was in gallons not weight. How many side dishes do you expect out of the recipe that you posted? I would like to make my answer more acceptable and believable, but to do so I would need the yield that you expect.
