Pounds of Pasta for Marathon

Posted: Updated:

Runners in this weekends Fargo Marathon will of course want to load up on carbs and energy the night before the big race.

The one restaurant in charge of making it all possible and feeding about 2,300 people is Johnny Carino's and they've got a marathon of their own starting today.

They'll be cooking about: 100lbs of marinara sauce, 150lbs of alfredo sauce, 500lbs of pasta, 250lbs of chicken, and 300lbs of romance lettuce for caesar salads.

This is not the first time Johnny Carino's has been challenged with this task, after this year they will have cooked for all eight Fargo Marathon's. Carino's also has fed the Fargo Force and NDSU athletic teams before their games.

Carino's says the biggest challenge ahead of them will be transporting all the food from their restaurant to the dome. Pasta service to marathon runners begins Friday at 4pm.
