A single serving size of pasta is typically **about two ounces** of dry pasta—amounting to about a cup of cooked pasta. Measuring out two ounces of dry pasta can get tricky when dealing with smaller pasta shapes like bow tie and macaroni.

To measure out 1 cup of dry pasta, **use your palm as a guide** (fill a closed fist). This works best for smaller noodle shapes like macaroni or rigatoni. Save a soda bottle. While the hole in a pasta spoon may vary, the size of a soda bottle opening will always be the same.

A 12 oz box has approximately **3 cups** of dry macaroni. Your quantity will double when cooked so you will then have about 6 cups of cooked pasta.
