It's a WW related Q

Sorry I don't know, but 20g isn't much.
Good luck though, hope it's going well.

Oh, I know, I usually measure myself 80g which is 4 points, but I want to know how much it would weigh cooked so I can shove it all in the same pan and weigh it as I serve it!

Well done TBGP (nice name change grin) that's fab - wish I had your staying power!

Pasta usually expands by about 2.5 I think - that's roughly what we go with in the factory I work for (making pasta salads amongst other things)anyway
