It depends on which shape you're cooking, but you'll get a pretty close idea from this chart:

Type of pasta Uncooked weight = Cooked amount
Small to medium pasta shapes
(Elbow Macaroni, Medium Shells, Rotini, Twists, Spirals,
Wagon Wheels, Bow Ties, Mostaccioli, Penne, Radiatore, Rigatoni) 8 oz. uncooked = 4 cups cooked
Long pasta shapes
(Spaghetti, Angel Hair, Linguine, Vermicelli, Fettuccine) 8 oz. uncooked or
1 1/2 inch diameter bunch = 4 cups cooked
Egg Noodles 8 oz. uncooked = 2 1/2 cups cooked
