how do i know  how much pasta to cook
In general, you can estimate that one pound of pasta will feed four adults of average appetite, assuming you’re only serving pasta. If there’s a big salad and fresh bread or the like to accompany the pasta, a pound of pasta can serve up to six people. When in doubt, it’s always better to cook a little more than you think you’ll need … leftover pasta can always be reheated in the sauté pan (best; fried leftover pasta can be as yummy as the original dish, actually) or in the microwave.
