Take the mystery out of measuring pasta.
When your recipe calls for 8 ounces of a type of dried pasta and your 16-ounce package has only a portion left, how do you know how much to use? Here's a measuring chart for quick reference. All weights are for a 1-cup measure of the uncooked type of pasta.
|Type of Pasta||Amount|
|Bow ties, large or small||2 ounces|
|Macaroni, elbow or rings||4 ounces|
|Noodles, all sizes||2 ounces|
|Shells, medium||3 ounces|
|Wagon wheels||3 ounces|
