That post title is extremely literal. I really do have a spaghetti question.
Tonight, I am cooking a spaghetti dinner for 7 adults and 5 children. I am making very simple spaghetti because that is all I can handle for a group that large. Ground beef in Ragu. Maybe I'll throw some basil in there if I'm feeling adventurous.
However, I don't know how much spaghetti to make to feed that many people. Hence, I need your input.
1. How much spaghetti should I make? 3 boxes??? More? Less?
2. How much meat? 3 pounds?
3. How many jars of Ragu? 3 or 4?
Help a sister out.
(If you're curious, this is a dinner I'm having for my little brother, who's in town for a short time before he leaves for Iraq. He's going to be doing a contractor-job over there for a year. I'm dealing with him leaving by focusing on things like spaghetti and Ragu jars rather than how much I'm going to be worrying over the next 12 months.)
