recipe so you will remember them as you work. To adjust recipes you want to use the following formula: Want/yield = multiplying factor Take the multiplying factor and multiply it by each ingredient amount. Recipe Adjusting Example Miracle Lasagna from slide 3 It yields 6 and I need it to feed 18 18/6=3 (multiplying factor) Take 3 and multiply by each ingredient 1 jar of Prego (3)=3 jars of Prego 6 lasagna noodles (3) = 18 lasagna noodles 2 cups shredded mozzarella (3) = 6 cups of mozzarella cup of grated Parmesan (3) = cup of grated Parmesan

Next, find the real recipe either online or in a cookbook and compare the real recipe to your recipe. What was the difference? What were you missing? Why is it important to have an accurate recipe when preparing food?
