How much water should I use for the best possible outcome?

I usually use 4-5 quarts for a pound of pasta. The directions on the bag or box should tell you.

Are you asking about boxed pasta like spaghetti or Asian noodles or ramen noodles?


If there is a package, there should be directions. If these are home dried, fresh pasta noodles then that is a different answer. Post back with a few more details so I can get you the right answer!

Now I am hungry for ramen! Yum!!!

Dried noodles? Egg noodles and "noodles" are made from different ingredients but usually both are cooked about the same way.

Recipes do not usually tell you how much water; they usually just say a large pot of water so you have to guess what they mean by a large pot of water.

I believe they mean to have enough water that noodles move around freely (have lots of room to move) and it is best to have too much (can you get too much?) than too little. Just be sure the water will not overflow.


The average pasta pot size is between 6 and 8 quarts, and it should be filled about 3/4 of the way or about 4-5 quarts with water for 1 pound of pasta.

Follow your recipe for how long to cook as that will vary according to what you will be making with your pasta.
Just be sure your noodles are moving freely.
