    I would say ..

    For his lunch he ate sausage, pasta, and boiled carrots.

    You need the commar after pasta if the pasta and the carrots are two different things .. but if they were served 'mixed together' you wouldn't need the commar.

    During lunch, he ate a sausage, pasta, and boiled carrots.

    Yes it is correct, but not smooth:

    For lunch he had sausage, pasta and steamed carrots.

    In Britain I would not add a comma after lunch. But I might add the 'Oxford comma' after 'pasta'!

    "For lunch he had sausage, pasta, and boiled carrots."  

    Note that 'steaming' is different from 'boiling'.  'During lunch' feels awkward, in the context of noting what he ate for lunch. You might use 'during' thus: 'During  lunch he took three brief phone calls.'

    Yes, the sentence is correct. Only add a comma (,) after lunch as it represents an adverb clause of place.

    Yes, although a comma after "lunch" would be in order.

    It is OK. No native speaker would say that, they would say:

    For lunch he ate sausage, pasta, and boiled carrots.

    The use of the Oxford Comma is optional.

    Yes that is correct but it sounds clunky but that maybe do to regional differences in language usage.

    "For his lunch he ate sausage, pasta and boiled carrots.
