Cooking for Parties/stag and doe


I'm cooking for my Daughter's stag and doe and want to have enough food for 200 people. I'm wondering about the quantity of food that I need. I hope to serve  pasta and sauce, meatballs, sausage, salad, bread, butter and romano cheese. Can you help me with the number of pounds of meat and pasta that I'll need? I've never done this before for so many people and want to make sure that I have enough food. Thank you, Joanne

For each person you will need:
10 oz sauce
2 oz uncooked pasta
1.3 rolls
1 TBS Romans Cheese
1 TBS Butter
3  2oz meatballs
1 4 oz piece of sausage
3 ounces of salad greens
2 oz of salad dressing
20 oz of non-alcoholic beverage (more if it's outside during the summer.

This should give you plenty of food with enough for hearty eaters and maybe enough leftovers that you won't have to cook the next day.
