Pasta – Q&A

Pasta – Q&A

Question – JoLynn asks: How do I know how much spaghetti to cook for my family? I always cook too much or too little!

Answer – I’m glad you asked! Here’s some helpful info I’ve found:
The next time you’re about to make spaghetti out of the box, hold it in between your index finger and thumb and make a circle around the pasta. For each adult consider a portion about the size of a nickle. For the larger appetite make a portion of either 2 nickles or larger. Children’s portion can be measured to about the size of a dime.
