Okay first question... When you make snd freeze pasta do you make more sauce then you would if u were eating it right away? The sauce always seems to dissapear when i reheat things

Secondly. The math question
Ok im making 20lbs of penna. Normally i need two cups of milk for the sauce for one lb. How many gallons of milk would i need for 20lbs worth????

Lol, is that a trick question? If for 1 pound you need 2 cups and you're making 20, it's simply 20 X 2. Which of course is 40.

And yes, it seems like you need more when you're storing pasta to reheat later.

Oh gotcha. Since there's 16 cups in a gallon, 2.5

I knew I was missing something, lol!.
