when i used to eat alot of pasta, i would look at the box and if it said 8 servings total, i'd only remove ~ an 1/8 from the box, or 1/4 if i accounted for 2 servings in my calorie range for that day.
it was easier to do with spaghetti or linguini.
if it were spirals or elbows, i might have to dump it into bowls and eyeball it that way.
sounds extreme, but i used to be an obsessive calorie counter.
it worked for me though, i lost weight!
