I measured out a cup but counted it as 2 servings because I have no idea how to figure out what 2 oz of dry pasta to cooked is, and thought 2 would be safe. If anyone knows, that would really help in the future, thanks!

What I do when cooking spaghetti is look at the box to see how many servings the whole box makes, usually 8. Then, by dividing that up, I can tell how much one serving would be. For example, I usually only make 1/2 a box at a time, or 4 servings. It is easy to separate the cooked pasta in half, then half again to get 4 equal portions, 2oz each. In my experience, each serving of cooked spaghetti comes to about a cup. __________________ ____________________ Carol Last edited by gardend1va; 01-27-2010 at 12:01 AM.

I used a digital scale. I hope this helps __________________ "That which does not kill us makes us stronger" ~Friedrich Nietzsche Last edited by misspriss78; 01-27-2010 at 06:07 AM.

Other pastas are different. I usually weigh all the cooked pasta and divide by number of servings in the box. __________________ -Shannon I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.
