Think about this question before you read further: how much spaghetti or other type of noodles do you eat at a time? Have your answer? I'm afraid my answer is, "Way too much". Ready for the answer (probably not)? 1/3 cup of cooked pasta (spaghetti, noodles, vermicelli, etc) is a serving! Wow! When was the last time you ate a serving of pasta? The next time you go to your favorite Italian restaurant you had better ask for a to-go box when you place your order!
