      Default Pasta Feeds for High School Football - Ideas please

      The parents of the football team host pasta feeds the Thursday before the Friday night football games. Since I have two sons on the team I signed up for two consecutive weeks, and am now drawing a blank at what to make. It either has to be very quick and easy due to the fact that I work until 4:30 and the food needs to be there around 5:00-5:15. It's not limited to pasta, it could be any main dish. I'm thinking crockpot or something I can make the night before and drop off at a friends house and have her heat it up so I can pick it up and go. And of course, the more frugal and higher the yield the recipe the better. Twelve sets of parents a week are trying to feed 88 football players plus the coaches.

      We do this too. I cook the pata the day before and store it in ziplock bags in the fridge. Last time I did it I heated up the sauce and meat on the stove and then put it all together in turkey roasting pans (the disposable tin foil ones) and kept it warm in the oven. Then just transported it. This year I'm borrowing crockpots and putting all together in the morning and setting them to Low. I get garlic bread from the deli (bake in foil) I can stack 10 loaves in my oven. Again i serve in the turkey trays. I also make a simple salad with only 1 dressing choice (ranch) Iceberg lettuce and shredded carrots (dirt cheap and the boys actually eat it!

      Baked potato bar with the works. Get big bakers wrap each in foil bake till done. set up a fixin bar Diced ham,, bacon, onions, sour cream, cooked broccoli, cheese, chilli You could fix a simple salad to go with it.

      Sandwiches.. Use french bread slice each into 8 sandwiches, salad and chips to go with

      Hot bbq beef, pork or chicken sandwiches. whatever meat you can get cheap in crockpot with bbq sauce cook all day then shred. Get dinner rolls then serve the boys from the hot crock pot.

      Chicken Tetrazzini (Feeds 20)
      Serves 20

      1 lb spaghetti, broken into pieces
      3 (10.75 oz) cans condensed cream of mushroom/chicken/ celery soup
      12 oz. shredded Cheddar cheese
      6 cups shredded boiled chicken breast meat
      1 lb sauteed mushrooms with a small onion & garlic
      1 (4 oz) jar sliced pimento peppers, drained
      2 cups chicken broth
      French Fried Onions
      Grated fresh parmesan

      Preheat oven to 350F. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add uncooked spaghetti (broken into thirds) to the pot and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain and set aside.

      In a large saucepan, heat soup over low heat. Add shredded cheese (reserve some for topping) and stir together. Then add the cooked shredded chicken, mushrooms, pimento peppers and cooked spaghetti and stir all together. Add enough of the reserved broth to make it 'sloppy' and mix all together.

      Divide mixture between two a 9x13 inch baking dishes. Sprinkle each with reserved shredded cheese, top with french fried onions, grated fresh parmesan and bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 35 minutes or until bubbly.
