    how much uncooked macaroni = cooked?

    I am making CL 3 cheese macaroni and cheese and forgot to measure beforehand. It calls for 2 cups uncooked macaroni or 8 oz. How much is this cooked?

    Thanks

    What kind of pasta are you using? Elbow mac, rotini, etc?
    Also, what is the pasta package size you used? ie: How many ounces?
    I'm assuming you cooked the entire box, or bag, of pasta.

    I would guess about 4 cups.

    16 ounces of elbow macaroni is 4 cups uncooked, as far as cooked I can't remember. I used to have it written down somewhere but don't know what I did with it.

    I had to go search for this because I couldn't remember:

    3 cups uncooked egg noodles
    3 1/2 cups cooked noodles

    1 cup uncooked
    2 cups cooked macaroni

    4 oz. dry spaghetti
    2 1/2 cups cooked spaghetti

    8 oz. uncooked spaghetti
    4 cups cooked spaghetti

    I know that with a lot of small shaped pastas that 16 ounces = 4 cups uncooked.
