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.

How many cups equals a quartof macaroni?

I make meals for 4 families since COVID began. When I make Baked Mac and Cheese, I use 4 pounds of elbow macaroni. And pour the drained pasta into a 7 quart large pot. It fills it 3/4 full. So, quesstimating that it fills the pot to 5 quarts, you get 5 quarts of pasta from 4 pounds of dry pasta. That would be, 1.25 quarts per pound.

Number of cups per quart, of cooked pasta, If you have 1.25 quarts per pound of pasta. You would get 8 cups of cooked pasta per pound of dry pasta.

It is different whether you mean how many cups of dried pasta makes a quart of macaroni, or how many cups of cooked pasta.

In general 4 cups of anything makes a quart

How much does 1 lb (455g) of dry elbow macaroni weigh when cooked (wet) in grams?

I thought this was a trick math question when I read it. 1 pound of pasta should weigh 1 pound when dry or cooked.

Dah on me...according to everything I read, pasta doubles in weight when cooked because of the water.

So from my understanding, 1 pound of dry pasta equals 2 pounds when cooked.

The easiest way to verify this is weight your pot, write down its weight, cook and drain your pasta, reweigh and subtract out the weight of the pot!

Blessings!

There are some variables but this question is about elbow macaroni and the only variable would be al dente or 'done' (overcooked?).

Generally 8 ounces of short pasta (like macaroni) is about 2 cups.

So a 1 pound box of dry pasta (16 ounces = 4 cups dry) cooks up to about 8 cups.

Sounds like double the weight to me.

Statement from pasta company:

"Obviously getting the amount of pasta+water involves simply increasing these factors by 1, so al dente will weigh 2.25x the original, and typical American overcooked pasta will be 2.4x the original weight."

I have a recipe that calls for 1 lb. of large elbow macaroni. I could only find a 24 ounce package. How many cups do I use for 1 lb.? I measured the 24 ounces and it's 7 cups.

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.

16 ounces is a pound Use 2/3 of the package.

If you ever need help again with conversations - Google is your best friend.

I searched : how heavy is 24 oz to pound

Results say

24 ounce is 1.5 pounds.

So I would 80% off the bag.

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.

August 29, 20174 found this helpful

1 cup of liquid is 8 fl oz. 1 cup of dry elbow macaroni is 1/4 pound

Thank you for actually answering JUST the question I asked. My recipe called for 1/2 lb. macaroni, and since I did not still have the container it came in, I was unsure how much that was in cups.

The other comments got me more confused than when I started--yours was so concise and all I needed to know! Thanks, again.

That would be 60% of the bag I believe.

If you need 1 lb, and have 1.5 lbs, divide the package into 3 equal parts, 2 of the divisions equals 1 lb and you will have 1/2 lb left over.

How many cups of elbow macaroni in a 12 ounce box of macaroni?

August 10, 20171 found this helpful

You have 3 cups of dried macaroni This will double when cooked.

August 10, 20171 found this helpful

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.

It is six cups cooked

August 14, 20172 found this helpful

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.

I need to make 2 lbs of pasta. So am I correct to say that's three 12 ounce boxes?

500gr of macaroni is equal to how many cups of cooked macaroni?
