Tip of the Day

When recipes call for so many ounces of dry noodles or so many cups of cooked noodles, do you know how to figure this out?  Well, here is a good rule of thumb to follow:

4 ounces of uncooked pasta (i.e. noodles, penne, macaroni, ziti. . .) = 1 cup dried pasta = 2 1/2 cups of cooked pasta

For my Creamy Noodle recipe, it calls for 6 ounces of dry (or uncooked) noodles.  The equivalent of that is 1 1/2 cups.
