    hi

    just went to have pasta, and pointed it for 4 oz weighed when dry, but this seems a huge amount when cooked?

    are the points for say, 100g dry, or 100g cooked? (ie cook it then weigh out the portion)

    thanks!

    It should give the nutritional information for both dried and cooked pasta on the back of the packet (I think it does on the Tesco stuff that I buy). 100g of dried pasta (the one I buy) is 5 points, so I always measure out 80g of dried pasta for 4 points and cook that separately from OH's and bub's so I know I have the right amount.

    Not sure if that really answers your question, but thought I'd share anyway, lol.
