View Full Version : pasta help URGENT!!!!!!!
How many grams of uncooked penne pasta do i need to get 150g of cooked pasta?
I have tried searching on google and cant find an answer and there is nothing on the packaging either.
It would be the same im assuming...
150g of cooked pasta is still the same as uncooked??
What u making?
its a weight watchers bacon and tomato pasta
Yeah it would be the same!!
So just get 150gm pasta and cook it up!!
Bacon and tomato pasta yummmmmmmm
cook a stack and weigh it before you chuck the dish together. I would think it would be heavier cooked than dry.
Shame they don't give the qty pre-cooked!
I thought the same too but why would they say 150gm of cooked pasta when no-one knows how much to cook?
Id say they mean get 150gm of pasta and cook it. Then it will be 150gm of cooked pasta??
I'd think it would weigh a bit more cooked, maybe 100 grams uncooked??
Sounds yummy by the way:chef:
As rule pasta triples in size when cooked so maybe try cooking 50gm uncooked then weigh it :)
triples in weight :eek: opps i did cook 150g uncooked, oh well at least i know ill have enough. I was a cheap pack so it doesnt matter if i have to waste heaps.
Thanks everyone :thumbsup:
I remember having this problem when I was doing WW with pasta... I worked out that 1/2 cup of uncooked pasta was the right amount for a single serve. (cant remember the points value though I am sorry). Hope that helps :)
i ended up with twice as much as i needed, so now i know for next time :thumbsup:
