The largest bowl of pasta weighed 6,253 kg (13,786 lb) and was made by Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant (USA), at the chain's Anaheim restaurant, Garden Grove, California, USA, on 12 March 2010.
To successfully set a new record the chefs had to fill a 4.57 m (15 ft) by 106.7 cm (42 in), 15,142 litre (4,000 gal) portable swimming pool. It took 5 people a total of 120 hours to call all the pasta for the attempt, which was then delivered in 11 separate pallets. 37.85 litres (10 gal) of tomato sauce was later added to the pasta.
