dried pasta and rice usually inflates to 1.3-1.5 times the size, although it totally depends on how you cook it [not long enough, too long] and what kind of rice/pasta it is.

Some pasta doesn't increase much at all whereas some will double in size.

i think it might be a cup.

either that or a half-cup. depends on how many ozs are in a serving size. (serving size is 1/2 cup)

2 oz ==57grams uncooked = 42g carbs

1 cup or 150g cooked = 40g of carbs

Since water doesn't have any carbs:

2oz dry ~= 5.5oz cooked.

You can look up macaroni uncooked and cooked at

Not really CD, it may in fact increase 1.3- 1.5 times in SIZE but oz's are a unit of mass.

Because the pasta also sucks up water, the increase in mass is more like 2.25 times.
