Mountain House lasagna edition... Honestly upon looking in the bag I thought it was going to taste a lot like cat food. Turns out it's delicious and absolutely falls under the category of "people food". Your belly will thank you for this purchase.

This stuff is so tasty and it just warms your belly. There is downside though - the cheese tends to stick hard to your spork and it's hard to wash off. I usually use some dirt for abrasiveness and then wash with soap and water.
I always take it with me on hikes and camping its good and fills me up
I generally like all MHS freeze dried food. This one was not a winner for me. It was just too spicy but without strong flavor, if that makes sense. So while I would not turn it away if offered, I would like in the pack for something else first.
Cant live without it
the Mountain house brand is the best. I love the meat sauce and the cheese melts in your mouth great taste and fills you up.
Spaghetti is better
This one was yummy and filling but I much prefer the spaghetti one.
Use a little less water
Took a few of these on a Uinta backpacking trip. This was very tasty but found that if you put a little less water then it asks for then it is better. This was the two servings pack.
Of all the MH meals, this is by far my favorite. It is a hearty meal that tastes like my little italian mother cooked it on her home stove. Make sure to stir well when first adding water or you might get a few hard chunks, but beyond that, the flavor is amazing.
it is all about expectations when it comes to freeze dried food. If you expect it to be like home cooking, (depending on home) than you are not thrilled. after a long day everything tastes good, this is actually pretty good. This is one of my favourites and i found little else's needed to be added to make it good. Salt and pepper always go a long way, but i would suggest this for any pack.
The Best MH
In my opinion this is the best tasting MH dinner product. It actually tastes like Lasagna and not something freeze dried out of a bag. My wife and I always grab one of these and share it. It's super cheesy (which makes it delicious), but it can be a pain to clean up. We usually eat right out of the bag so that really only means getting your spork gunked up, but well worth it :-) HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
tastes great, but loaded to the gills with salt
if i was just rating taste, i'd give this five stars. it's delicious for a freeze dried meal, and pretty damn good even if it wasn't.. my issue with it, and other MH meals is that they load this stuff up with an incredible amount of salt. take a look at the nutritional info, and beware if you have issues with salt or high blood pressure. i don't have health concerns, but i do notice a headache after eating a pouch of many MH foods.
Out of all the Mountain House meals, this is my favorite. But when it says serves two, that's if you make something else to go with your Lasagna. A very hungry person can eat this in one sitting. And also try adding just a bit less water to make it thicker. Good Eats...
One of The Very Originals
Mountain House has been making this meal with few changes since their inception. This is one of their original line-up. After returning to camp from a climb last summer I was starving. I boiled a pot of water, added it to the pouch, waited twelve minutes, pigged out! I normally don't eat a two serving meal by myself but this time I did. I was full & ready for the next adventure. Easy preparation, tastes good, & easy clean-up. You can't ask for much more in outdoor dining.
Lovin' the Lasagna
What else is there to say, Mountain House is the best! And my all-time favorite meal is their Lasagna. I have not met anyone who has tried it who has not liked it.
Delicious but sticky cheese hard to clean-up
Just back from a trip where two of us each had the lasagna and we agreed it was one of Mountain House's best meals. The only problem is that this meal has some type of cheese which sticks like glue to utensils--both metal and plastic. We'll opt for the spaghetti w/meat sauce next time--equally delicious and with no clean-up problems.
My favorite mountain house
This is by far my favorite mountain house flavor. You can actually pull out strings of cheese. MMMmmm. Of course, you need a 2 serving bag for one person who is doing some decent amount of hiking, but other than that its awesome.
Great Tasting Product
If you have a thing of Italian food and the outdoors, don't leave the house without Mountain House's Lasagna with Meat Sauce. Delicious and filling, this portable food is probably my all time favorite. Two servings can easily be passed around three average weight guys who'd rather share their food then carry the extra individual weight. It's ready to eat in about 8 minutes (it says 5 on the bag, but give it extra time to tenderize) and the bag seals back up so you can throw it in your pack and not worry about opening it later and finding your sleeping bag covered in tomato paste. If you havent tried it already, buy it. You won't be disappointed.
Sticks to the ribs..
Once you've developed your Backcountry palate this will be one of the more tasty meals out there. 1 Pizza Hut packet of crushed red pepper when its done will give it that extra kick. Best meal for miles.
how long is the shelf life of this...
how long is the shelf life of this product
I believe it's up to 5 years if properly stored.
One of my all time favorites. The only downfall is that the cheese in the lasagna mix makes a tough mess on your cookware. It takes a little more elbow grease to get you titanium bowl clean after this meal. Just as tasty, but less messy Spagetti.
