Backpacker's Spaghetti And Meat Sauce For Two
thanks to Howard Holtman

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cups dried ground beef (1-LB original weight)
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce leather (dried from 24 oz jar of liquid)
  • 1/4 cup dried mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup dried zucchini
  • 1 glove fresh garlic
  • 200 grams spaghetti noodles
  • Parmesan cheese

Cooking instructions:
1. Mix beef, chopped garlic, leather, mushrooms and zucchini in 2+ cups of water and simmer for 30 minutes or until reconstituted (note: add veggies to cold water and then heat)

2. Boil pasta in water (with a little salt and oil) until soft. Drain and put on plates

3. Pour meat sauce over top

4. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Mama Mia it's a treat to eat!

Dehydrated meat and sauce makes this light and store-able on the trail for weeks. Once you serve this it will be required eating on all future trips.
