How much cooked pasta results from cooking 2 ounces of dry pasta?
Two ounces of dried pasta is the recommended amount of pasta per serving per person. To simplify calculations, one 16-ounce box of pasta should feed eight people one serving of cooked pasta or four people two servings of cooked pasta. For measuring purposes, 2 ounces of dry pasta is between 1/2 and 3/4 cup of uncooked pasta shapes or a handful of spaghetti about 2 1/8 inches in diameter. Source: barilla.com
