Nutrition Facts

  • Not available.
  1. I was unsure of how many ounces of dry pasta would yield 24 oz. of cooked pasta since I don’t have a scale. I used 12 oz dry pasta which yielded about 6 cups cooked pasta. Since the entire recipe makes 4 servings this came out about right for me – the servings are very large.
