### Question: How To Convert Dry Macaroni Measurements

September 9, 2007

Does anyone have a conversion chart for dry macaroni just how many cups is 8 oz.?

Most containers will give the approximate number of servings, as well as the number of servings in the container. Say the size of the box is 16 oz. and the number of servings is 8,with serving size being 1/2 cup. With this you can figure the results you need. In this case, 16 oz. (total weight);8 servings per container; 1/2 cup per serving. So, if there is 8 servings in 16 oz. then 2 oz. is a serving, and 2 oz. equils 1/2 cup. This means that there are 4 cups in l6 oz. so 8 oz. would be 2 cups.

I hope I have made this clear (I have taken these number amounts from my box of elbow macaroni. so I feel it is pretty accurate.

In a 12oz box of macaroni you will have 6 cups of cooked macaroni. If you have an 8oz box of macaroni this will yield 4 cups. So for every ounce of macaroni in a box it will yield 1/2 cups of cooked macaroni.

I believe this question always gets a lot of confusing answers as no one seems to measure pasta/macaroni in the same way. Dry measurement does not always equal out the same as liquid measurements and the type/size of macaroni can make a difference in how many cups in 12 ounces.

Here is an excellent site to ask any of your cooking questions.

Well, 1 lb is 16 ounces. So, you would use 16 ounces of macaroni. Which should come out to around a little more than 4 and 1/2 cups.

Liquid measure has 8 ounces equalling 1 cup. Dry measure is different. 7 cups equals about 24 ounces.

1 cup = 8 oz = 1/2 lb.

2 cup = 16 oz = 1 lb.
