Pasta doubles in size. 16 ounces is 4 cups dry and 8 cups cooked.

If you are only looking for dry measurements, then it is 4 cups.

If you want cooked measurements, then it is double this which means it is 8 cups.

Most sites show penne pasta as medium size but there is also a mini size penne. Instructions are usually given for the medium size.

  • Barilla shows this for their blue box.
  • Penne - 5 cups - 9-1/2 cups cooked
  • Most instructions show this measurement:
  • 8 ounces of uncooked small to medium pasta shapes = 4 cups cooked
  • Measure penne pasta using measuring cups or a food scale. If you are using measuring cups, a single 2 oz. (57 g) serving is 3/4 cup of dried pasta.

  • Two servings = 1 1/2 cups; four servings = 3 cups; six servings = 4 1/2 cups; eight servings = 6 cups.
  • Here is a link that might help with all the confusion.
