Pappardelle / Tagliatelle Portions

I want to make some pasta with fresh corn and tomatoes this week, and I was going to use either papardelle or tagliatelle, which I don't think I've ever cooked with before. I always make recipes that call for a pound of pasta so that we have leftovers to take for lunch, which sometimes mean doubling recipes, etc. When I was in the store today all the packages of papardelle and tagliatelle that I found were 8 ounces, which is also what all the recipes called for. Just wondering, are the portion sizes for these pastas different than for others? I.e., should I really be doubling the recipe and getting two packages of pasta, or is 8 ounces of papardelle / tagliatelle the equivalent of a pound of penne/linguine/etc.? Hope that makes sense. Thanks!
