## Noodles

Hey,

On the back of my elbow noodles it reads "0.5 cups dry" as being equivalent to one serving.  I know that noodles expand when being boiled, so does this "half of cup dry" mean, a half of cup of cooked noodles or a half of cup of noodles out of the package?  If anyone knows I'd be very appreciative!

I would guess half a cup straight out of the package. But if you cook 1/2 dry in water, I can't see the nutritional value changing that much.  ???

It means, measure 1/2 c. of dried noodle, cook them, and then there's your serving. Your half cup of dried noodles will become 3/4 or 1 cup of noodles once they're cooked. Another way to figure this out is figure out how many servings in a package (8?), divide it into 8 equal portions, and then there's your portion size. And then cook it. Dried noodles are awful.  ;)
