Here's a website which may (or not) help to solve the mystery: http://www.princepasta.com/Nutritional.h tm 2 oz of UNCOOKED pasta is generally considered a serving. I have a scale which I use for such things, but I think about a half cup cooked is a serving for someone watching their weight. It generally triples in weight when cooked. Measuring spaghetti uncooked is an interesting exercise! You can get little gizmos with circles cut out that represents various size servings.

I know I've seen a discussion on this somewhere, but I can't find it. The package says 2oz is a serving. A website (pasta) says that as well. Is that dry or cooked? I cooked 4 oz and have more than 2 servings. So, is it 2oz cooked and if so, how much do you measure out dry for cooking?
