    • Hi Terrah! I used 96/4 (I will add that to the recipe notes!). You can use your preferred leanness, just be sure to re-calculate your macros/calories based on what you use 🙂

    How much is actually a serving ? U said six servings so do I weigh it all cooked and divide that by 6?! Would help if u could just tell us. Thank you.

    • Hi Stephanie, Thanks for reaching out! Yes, if you would like the exact serving in grams, you would need to weigh your entire dish after it’s cooked in grams (less the weight of the container) and then divide by 6. The reason why I didn’t put an exact amount is because there is so much variability. For example, if you cooked your pasta longer than mine and it absorbed more water, it would have a different weight. If you need to be accurate for tracking purposes, weighing your final product will be the most accurate way to go!
