How Much Pasta to Serve for 15 people?

Jodi B | Sep 10, 2009 06:47 PM

I'm having a party for my boyfriend's birthday this Saturday. I plan to make bruschetta pasta with chicken. I also plan to serve a Caesar salad and of course garlic bread. For an appetizer we are having antipasto. So my question is, how many lbs of linguine should I make? I'm thinking 2-3 lbs but I don't want a TON of leftovers.

I am also making the bruschetta myself and I honestly have no idea how much to make of that either since I'm used to just cooking for 3 people (my boyfriend, my father and me). I've also noticed that when people are drinking wine and talking they tend to consume less food. I know I do. However I will be having a few men coming with big appetites so I would hate to shortchange them.

Your input would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
