    Alfredo

      The taste was great- didn't need anything extra, and is absolutely amazing out in the backcountry. I'm not sure if my package was just mislabeled or what, but they said 3/4 cup boiling water. Definitely not right!! We added some more afterward, but it didn't soak in well enough and the noodles were still a bit crunchy. Only reason it gets four stars- if the water ratio had been a little more spot on, definitely would have earned five.

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I grabbed these for a backpacking trip, but they didn't make it to my pack--I scarfed them down during a midnight munchie attack. They were pretty good actually. Not quite fresh pasta of course, but a big step up from ramen noodles.

      My backcountry menu:

        Rather than write a small review for each individual item I recently purchased I thought I would share it all in one concise review. (Note with most Mountain House I add 2-3 oz less than it recommends)

        Recommend:

        Breakfast:
        Backpacker's Pantry Granola with Blueberries and Milk – Favorite :) (serve warm)
        AlpineAire Strawberry Honey Granola With Milk – healthy and good! (serve warm)
        Backpacker's Pantry Denver Omelet (needs pan) – best quick eggs I have tried.

        Lunch/Dinner:
        Mountain House Chicken Ala King – Favorite :)
        Backpacker's Pantry Katmandu Curry - Yum
        Mountain House Macaroni And Cheese – Oh to be a kid again!
        AlpineAire Chicken Gumbo – Delicious

        Sides/Deserts:
        Mountain House Potatoes And Cheddar With Broccoli – Favorite :)
        Mary Janes Farm Organic Garlic Pesto Fry Bread – I love bread! (bring oil)
        Mountain House Peas – Eat your veggies! Add 1-2 oz less water
        Mountain House Corn – Favorite, Add 1-2 oz less water :)
        Mountain House Green Beans – Add 1-2 oz less water
        Mary Janes Farm Organic Brownies – Yes really good!
        Mountain House Ice Cream Sandwich – Don’t get the Neapolitan, this is much better.
        Mountain House Blueberry Cheesecake – Nice size berries, make in a bowl NOT the package. (Note it will NOT keep
        Overnight).

        Pass:
        Backpacker's Pantry Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes – The Mountain House Potatoes and Cheddar with Broccoli are MUCH
        better even the resident mouse in our cave didn’t like it.
        Mountain House Scrambled Eggs With Bacon - Backpacker's Pantry Denver Omelet is much better IMO but requires a
        pan.
        Mountain House Scrambled Eggs With Ham - Backpacker's Pantry Denver Omelet is much better IMO but requires a pan.

        Neutral:
        Mary Janes Farm Organic Couscous And Lentil Curry – Not bad but I like my curry with more curry!
        Mary Janes Farm Organic Black Bean Corn Bread – Not bad but NOT cornbread just a bread with some cornmeal in it.
        Mountain House Noodles And Chicken – Yet to try will update
        Mountain House Pasta Primavera – Yet to try will update
        Mountain House Mexican Chicken With Rice – Yet to try will update
        Mary Janes Farm Organic Alfredo Pasta – Yet to try will update
        Backpacker's Pantry Chana Masala – Yet to try will update

        Another MJF Hit!

          I thought this was an excellent meal with good flavor and texture. I recommend using a couple fewer ounces of water when preparing it; it keeps it from being too soupy. Eating the whole packet put me at 405 calories, which is about right for a solo meal, which is something I like about the MJF "1.5 serving" "Outback" size. It's not huge like the 4-serving meals designed for families or groups, but not too small like some of the single-serving packages. And as always, I love that I can get an organic, vegetarian meal in the backcountry...Thanks, Mary Jane! :-)

          somewhat bland but decent camp food

            this dish was somewhat bland, but plenty suitable for consumption out in the woods... suggest an addition of some sort of protein such as a lemon garlic seasoned chicken breast or something similar

            Solid eats

              Another good meal from Mary Janes. I just went right out of the box and into my mouth. The other general thing that I like about Mary Janes is the portion size. Seems to be the right amount to feed the hungry hiker.
