As long as we make sides with it such as garlic bread, we can get away with a 16 oz box.

I buy a 4 kilogram (that's well over 8 pounds) box, so I don't measure that way. But it's a lot.

I use 32oz noodles(2 boxes) of wheat noodles, about a pound of hamburger, and one large jar of sauce. Once my little ones start eating larger amounts I will have to use more of everything.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

1.5 boxes of spaghetti PLUS two jars of sauce, one can of stewed tomatoes, one pound Italian sausage, one pound of ground beef, 3/4 package of pepperoni, one large onion, 4 cloves of garlic, one large bell pepper, and one cup of red wine. We serve with a garden salad and 5 cheese Texas toast. We usually have leftovers for lunch the next day or to make up a goulash with excess sauce.
