# Raw Vs Cooked Pasta Weight?

How Does Pasta Weight Change When it’s Cooked? – I’ve done some research and weighed different types of pasta before and after cooking and what I found is that how much pasta changes in weight after cooking depends on the shape. When dried pasta is cooked, it absorbs water and increases in weight by at least 100%, and some shapes increase up to 150% (2 to 2.5 times the original weight).

This means that if you cook 50g (1.8oz) of dried pasta, it will weigh around 100g to 150g (3.5-5.3oz) after cooking. I tested various popular pasta types, including tagliatelle, penne (white and brown/wholemeal), and spiral pasta. This test was carried out using 50g (or as close to 50g) portions of pasta which were cooked for identical times using the pack recommended cooking times.

Interestingly the pasta type which absorbed the most amount of water and increased in weight by 150% (2.5 times the original weight) was the tagliatelle. The image below shows the weight difference of tagliatelle before and after cooking: The spiral pasta weight increased from 50g to 117g when it was cooked, which is 2.3 times its original weight.
