I know we can eat as much free food as we need to fill us up, but out of interest how much pasta would you cook up for yourself? I'd be interested to know if I'm having enough/too much. I usually cook up about two small handfuls of brown pasta and have it with a chunky sauce made with Quorn pieces etc - I do green days. And then have some super free veg on the side too. But I could easily eat double/triple that if it was on my plate!!

I love pasta, so I will make a huge pot and put the rest in the fridge. I would easily have what you have if not a bit more and skip the salad if I was full. If you feel full, you've had enough and if not you can have some more.

100g dry weight is a portion size according to the packet's i use so i say that's fine. I find that's just the right amount. Saying that when i do red days and have 70g dry weight i actually find that this is enough.

I just love the stuff though so do have 100g on EE days.
