Ingredient conversions: pasta, rice and grains

This is another part of cooking that boggles my mind. I often have difficulty converting dry pasta to cooked and the serving sizes on the boxes really don’t help. But I have found this chart to be helpful:

Uncooked Cooked
3 cups uncooked egg noodles 3 1/2 cups cooked noodles
1 cup uncooked 2 cups cooked macaroni
4 oz. dry spaghetti 2 1/2 cups cooked spaghetti
8 oz. uncooked spaghetti 4 cups cooked spaghetti
1 cup long grain rice 3 to 3 1/2 cups cooked rice
1 cup dry pre-cooked (instant) rice 2 cups cooked rice
1 cup dry beans 2 1/4 cups cooked beans
1 cup quick oats, dry 1 3/4 cup cooked oatmeal
