Since I love pasta, I tried this. I have a food weigh scale at home, I measured dry pasta, say spaghetti (3 oz =1 serving) Cooked it up, and then measured it in a measuring cup. It came out to be roughly 1 1/2 cups of cooked spaghetti. The scales are not very expensive, and very helpful.
For most conversions, you can just type "[initial measurement] to [what you want to convert it to]" in a Google search, and it'll do the math for you.

I assumed you meant 2 oz. of dried pasta because that's the serving size listed on the box. But that's dry weight. I agree that serving size usually comes out to one cup of cooked pasta. I have no idea how much 2 oz. of cooked pasta is.

I'm referring to 'cooked' pasta - so would you say 1 cup would be 2oz? I'm confused...
