Weigh the thing, that's how they do it in restaurants. 2 ounces or roughly 60 grams of dry pasta per person if the pasta is a side for a main protein or dish. 100gr per serving if you like to eat a lot of pasta, or if the whole meal is only pasta mixed with something. 200 gr if you're eating nothing but pure pasta for that meal and want to feel full and hate yourself afterwards.

Agree weigh, but jeez that feels like a lot of pasta lol. I usually do 40 grams with some bread for dinner. I can’t imagine eating 60 grams as a side but I like to leave room for dessert.

Are all cooks drug dealers?... Actually never mind. Don't answer that.

[-] [email protected] 19 points 4 months ago

Just start body building. Then you can just make the entire box and be fine.

Seriously, though, eating 4-5000 calories a day of healthy food is awful.

[-] [email protected] 9 points 4 months ago

"healthy food"

When your body is desperate for calories, all food is healthy.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 4 months ago

Not for your gains!

[-] [email protected] 19 points 4 months ago

100 grams per person. Easy. Whatever the equivalent is in freedom units.

[-] [email protected] 23 points 4 months ago

i just checked and it's 100 grams in america, too

I'd say about 0.0215 bald eagles.

[-] [email protected] 11 points 4 months ago

bald eagle weight: 3 – 6.3kg. so you are actually right in the ballpark. Nicely done.

[-] [email protected] 12 points 4 months ago

Had to spent a minute or two looking it up but it was worth it.

Most pasta spoon/spatulas have a hole in them that is the size of 1 serving of uncooked spaghetti.

[-] [email protected] 10 points 4 months ago

that's what that hole is for?! TIL

[-] [email protected] 10 points 4 months ago

Yup. I actually read the label on one once. It's amazing what useful info you can get from product labels.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 4 months ago

Oh. Well, shit, I've been using it for ... Nevermind.

I juat make all of it and meal prep

[-] [email protected] 10 points 4 months ago

I like that there's a fancy word for it. I've always done food for two or three days in one go because I'm lazy. I don't want to be cooking every day. But in reality I've been meal prepping this whole time.

Feels good

I just cooked an entire 900 g bag of cavatappi and froze most of it. Will defrost portions as needed. Way easier than washing a pot every time.

[-] De_Narm 11 points 4 months ago

I just cook 250g, or half a package, every time and that works fine. It's getting more complicated if I cook for more people than just me though.

People always judge me for it, since I'm skinny.

[-] newthrowaway20 9 points 4 months ago* (last edited 4 months ago)

That's what I do but I'm also cooking for two every time, and we usually have enough leftovers for somebody to have lunch the next few days. That's really impressive that you can put that amount of spaghetti away all by yourself.

[-] De_Narm 16 points 4 months ago

Thank you, it's not often that people are impressed by my spaghetti handling abilities.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 4 months ago

You kinda have to train your body to do it. It's not a fun process.

[-] [email protected] 10 points 4 months ago

Oh, it doesn't look like enough. All add in some veggies to fill it out. Oh, still not enough. Maybe some tofu.

And then you have enough for 3 meals before you know it.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 4 months ago

That sounds like a win in my book.

One bag per person, why are people failing at this?

[-] AA5B 3 points 4 months ago

Right. Clearly they package it by serving for our convenience

[-] MTK 2 points 4 months ago
[-] BluesF 8 points 4 months ago

I usually do a whole 500g bag. Can't go that wrong, there will be enough.

[-] GeneralEmergency 7 points 4 months ago

One handful per person, plus one

[-] [email protected] 9 points 4 months ago

I wouldn't think one extra spaghet makes much of a difference.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 4 months ago

Thank you for blessing me with this video. It's perfect! It's short, specific, and well produced.

[-] fidodo 6 points 4 months ago

Pasta roughly doubles in size so just imagine twice as much as you cook.

[-] hydrospanner 2 points 4 months ago

And draw the rest of the fucking owl.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 4 months ago

When I was young I’d cook the whole 16 oz package and make way too much…

I’ve since learned that because the pasta absorbs a lot of water, a few oz of dry pasta actually makes way more than it looks like it will. For me, 5.33 oz of dry pasta (third of the bag) works perfect. You can do less though if you don’t need that much.

In that I always eat it all, even if I made way too much

[-] [email protected] 3 points 4 months ago

If I could eat always the same amount everything would be easier.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 4 months ago

Always use less...people eat too much.

[-] Nanomerce 3 points 4 months ago

I just do 2 and a half handfuls since I don't buy the long ones

[-] MolochAlter 3 points 4 months ago

80 g per person, can't miss.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 4 months ago

I'm actually really surprised this is a thing. I always get the same bags of pasta, so maybe that helps me measure them. It's always half or 2/3rds depending on the meal.
