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.

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.

225g dry macaroni is confusing. Is it a weight or a volume? I found that answers online vary a lot. And most charts convert dry to cooked not dry grams to dry cups. The most common answer was that a 58gram dry serving is about 1/2 cup dry macaroni...so 225g of dry is roughly 2 cups dry and makes 4 cups cooked.

Is dry spaghetti the same? Apparently, it's roughly the same. I'm gonna try 2 cups and see how it goes.
