 NICKERAMA Posts: 43 5/19/09 2:23 P Hi There: 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. Hope that helps! Nickerama!
 DOCNORMOUS Posts: 826 9/17/08 3:44 P You got it. My personal experience is still 2oz to 6-7 oz., lol, but I usually don't give it time to soak up all the water.. Happy pasta cooking. DOC
 BEFITSPIRITED Posts: 12,564 9/17/08 8:09 A Thank you DOC! This one makes sense for me. Thanks for the link to the site too!
 DOCNORMOUS Posts: 826 9/17/08 5:44 A This was taken from the National Pasta Association website (ilovepasta.org). Maybe this helps: It depends on which shape you're cooking, but you'll get a pretty close idea from this chart: Small to medium pasta shapes (Elbow Macaroni, Medium Shells, Rotini, Twists, Spirals, Wagon Wheels, Bow Ties, Mostaccioli, Penne, Radiatore, Rigatoni) 8 oz. uncooked = 4 cups cooked Long pasta shapes (Spaghetti, Angel Hair, Linguine, Vermicelli, Fettuccine) 8 oz. uncooked or 1 1/2 inch diameter bunch = 4 cups cooked Egg Noodles 8 oz. uncooked = 2 1/2 cups cooked DOC Edited by: DOCNORMOUS at: 9/17/2008 (06:21)

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.
 BEFITSPIRITED Posts: 12,564 9/16/08 5:47 P I'm referring to 'cooked' pasta - so would you say 1 cup would be 2oz? I'm confused...
 NIRERIN Posts: 14,079 9/16/08 5:24 P doc cups are a volume measurement, not a weight [like oz - and yes, 8 fluid ounces equals 1 cup, but most of the time when you see ounces, weight is implied, not the fl. oz. ].
 AMANDA1179 Posts: 1,829 9/16/08 5:24 P Typically 1 cup of pasta = 200 calories... check calorieking.com
 DOCNORMOUS Posts: 826 9/16/08 5:12 P I must have read this wrong, but there is a 1 to 3 ratio on average. 2 oz. of dry pasta = at most 6+ oz. cooked. DOC
 CHRISTINEDC Posts: 3,970 9/16/08 4:42 P A very general formula is that 2 oz dry pasta = 1 cup cooked.
 OUTOFCONTROL SparkPoints: (0) Fitness Minutes: (73,076) Posts: 11,620 9/16/08 4:10 P You can't do it because ounces probably refers to weight for uncooked pasta, and cups is a measure of volume. Depending on the type of pasta, the amount you will get from 2 ounces dry will vary.
 BEFITSPIRITED Posts: 12,564 9/16/08 3:53 P I checked the conversion chart that's available but it won't allow me to do this conversion. Help??
