You don’t really expect a gourmet meal when you are eating camp food. But you’d be surprised how absolutely delicious this pasta is. We rehydrated it and sprinkled a little sharp cheddar over the top and felt like we were eating a homemade meal. We will be buying this again. It also sits easy on your stomach when you’re hiking High mileage. One serving is very filling. This is a terrific easy camp meal. We use it for RV Boondocking too.
