    It depends on how big eaters they are. A pound box should be plenty.

    What you COOK and what you SERVE is two different things. Cook more than you need. Nothing worse than serving too little. People can always go back for seconds and you can always say 'there's plenty for anyone who wants more'.

    What else are you serving? 

    4 ounces of dry pasta is a "serving" you could go with 6 or an 8 ounce portion as a serving. That would be 2 boxes if they are 16 ounces, some pasta is now in a 12 ounce box but 2 of those should be enough 

    If the sauce is hearty and you have a salad and bread to go with it then 4 ounces should be plenty but make an extra 1 or 2 portions for leftovers or if you send someone home with some.

    Since pasta is cheap, I'd cook two 16-ounce boxes of spaghetti for five people who are all adults. If some is left uneaten, it's not much of a loss.

    You never know if one of the people never got a chance to eat lunch, or is super hungry tonight, or just loves your sauce, right?

    2 oz per person will be ample.
