I'm making a macaroni and cheese recipe and it calls for 1/4 pound cooked pasta. Can anyone tell me how much uncooked pasta would equal 1/4 pound of cooked pasta?

I would guess that it should read..."1/4 lb pasta cooked" meaning you cook 4 oz of dry pasts. But that's just me. Wait for some other responses because I'm certainly no pro.

Might help if you post the recipe you are using? But I am guessing that Connie is correct.

I also think it is 1/4 pound that is then cooked.

Definitely 1/4 lb rotini cooked. Weigh first, cook second.
