Pasta Measurements

For my birthday last year, my sister gave me a kitchen scale. I knew it would be useful for some of my bread and other recipes, but I did not know how useful it would be for other things.

I buy a lot of my food items in bulk, especially things like pasta. A lot of recipes call for 1 pound of pasta. Well, when you buy in bulk it is hard to tell what one pound of pasta is. One pound of macaroni noodles noodles is a different cup measurement than one pound of penne pasta, which is different from one pound of egg noodles.

This is where my kitchen scale comes in handy.

Now I can easily figure out what one pound of pasta is. So, thanks Flo I love my kitchen scale.

Here are some of the measurements that I figured out:

1 pound penne pasta = 4 1/2 cups
1 pound macaroni noodles = 3 cups
1 pound egg noodles = 8 cups
1 pound fusilli pasta = 6 cups

  1. I love my kitchen scale, too! I didn’t realize how much I used it until the batteries died and it was M.I.A.! Thanks for showing some kitchen scale love!

  2. I love my kitchen scale! I bought it because I was 30+ pounds overweight and was determined to lose weight by measuring everything I ate for a caloric counting. That lasted 3 days.

    But I found out that it works great for repackaging foods for the freezer and for teaching my kids correct portions.

  3. Great idea! I don’t have a nice kitchen scale. That might have to be on my Christmas list!!

  4. I agree. My kitchen scale is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets. I also use it for pasta, and repackaging meat, sauce and other food for the freezer. I also measure out bulk chocolate chips, raisins or other add ins for cookies and bars.
