Do you need to serve a small army, but don't have much time? This is definitely the dish for you! We followed the recipe pretty closely as it said it would serve four, and figured that would be enough for DaDa, MaMa and I, with enough left over for DaDa's lunch the next day, right? Try left overs enough for the next five or six lunches. It's the pasta dish that could feed 5,000! OK, maybe that's an exaggeration, but it sure made a bunch of pasta. Not only did it produce a week's worth of lunches for DaDa, it also tasted delicious, so he won't mind having to eat it for lunch every day this week. :) MaMa did the math and she says it's a pretty economical way to feed a large family (being realistic, it would probably feed 6 to 8, maybe even 10 if you added a side dish or two).
