How much water will dry semolina pasta absorb when it is properly cooked? For example, how much water would one pound of farfalle or spaghetti absorb?
I am guessing the shape of the pasta doesn't matter, just the absolute weight.
I am not looking for how much water is required to boil it, nor what temperature is required, just how much should be absorbed. I like my pasta cooked a minute or so past the box "al dente" stage.
The application is single burner cooking (I only have one available). I can make the sauce, then add additional water and pasta to cook directly in the sauce, making for only one burner being required, and only a single pot to clean.
I understand the actual amount will require due to the vagaries of how much evaporates, but I expect that to be a minor adjustment.
