A one pound box of pasta feeds 4-6 people as an entree, 8 to 10 as a side dish. Whatever is being served with the spaghetti will have a direct effect on how much spaghetti to allow per person. This will vary depending on the age of the people being served and the time of day, as well as if it's being served as a buffet or being plated or if it's an all-you-can-eat dinner with seconds. Thick, heavy sauces require slightly less pasta. Calculate the size of your pasta serving. Then allow a measured amount of sauce per serving. When serving the sauce to a large number of people, scoop it onto the pasta using a pre-determined measure, even if it's just a small coffee mug or measuring cup you can quickly dip into the sauce.
