    Change the number in the servings box on the recipe to the number of servings you need, it will automatically change the amounts in the ingredients list. Amounts will not change in the directions, though.

    There is nowhere on the recipe to change that. I tried. It's Paula Deens baked spaghetti on food network. If you can find out where to change it let me know. I have seen other sites that do allow you to adjust. I wish
    Food Network would do the same. Thanks, Pam

    You can do a search here and see if her recipe is on our data base.

    This may be similar and it is a recipe I use. It serves 4 (fills a pie plate)

    Well, you might bring that up to the Food Network. This is Food.com, and although the two websites are both owned by Scripps, they are not associated in any other way. I'm sure the other site would welcome the suggestion.

    I'd simply cut the recipe in half and bake it in two dishes, one for now and one for the freezer.

    I halve recipes all the time for my family of 4.
    The only time this doesn't work so well, is with baking. That gets a bit tricky.
