    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

    As rule pasta triples in size when cooked so maybe try cooking 50gm uncooked then weigh it

    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
