Description

Thats a one a spicy meatball.

Ahh, the pleasure of a fine Italian diner after a week on the trail. Well, maybe not the wine but at least the great food. Mountain House's Freeze Dried Spaghetti with Meat Sauce meal for two is lightweight, easy to make, and best of all, tastes great. It comes in a foil package that stands up on its own for easy eatin' and cookin'.

One of the Greats

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my personal favorite kind of mountain house. Even though it comes out kind like a soup it still is good. It taste a lot like spaghetti O's maybe that is why i like it so much.

decent

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

To me the spaghetti tasted like Spaghetti-O's, it was good and was one of the better mountain house meals I have had.

Home away from home

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Spaghetti is a comfort food for me, and having this when I'm away is perfect. Out of all of the Mountain House meals this one tastes the most like "home". It's super tasty; however, I do prefer the Beef Stroganoff out of their line if dehydrated meals.

Way better than expected!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

You can only expect so much from a dehydrated meal but this one really surprised me! Tasted very similar to the real made at home Spaghetti... just different...
Overall a great meal, I wouldn't label it 'gourmet' or 'amazing'... but very good!

One of my favorites!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Super tasty! This is probably one of my favorite Mountain House meals! Perfect for backpacking, it's lightweight and super easy to make! Perfect amount for two people, I would highly recommend this one!

Nothing better.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I look forward to eating when I'm packed with Mountain House. Very tasty, quite hardy, plenty of food. Light weight, cooks within minutes.

Best. Dehydrated Meal. Ever.

Most dehydrated meals are lacking in flavor or gut-filling capability. This meal has both. If you're a fan of Spaghetti-O's (and what 10 year old trapped in a 25 year old's body isn't!?) then you'll love the flavor of this meal. If filled me up and tasted incredible after a long day.

Mmm..

One of the better mountain house meals in my opinion! When you have a lot to pack, meals like this save a lot of weight.

Delicious!

Great lightweight food for my long hiking trips.I?m sold on freeze dried food on long hikes or food storage. Very tasty and filling.

Great meal

This is a another delicious meal by mountain house. This is not enough for two, and its to runny if you use the whole two cups. I would recommend using 4 or 5 ounces less than the instructions say. Other than that this is a great delicious meal. I would recommend it to anyone.

Solid

Easy, fast, packable and tasty. Super convenient to just pour boiling water into the bag, pack up my cooking supplies, and be ready to eat in 10 minutes.

Sketti

This stuff is great for backpacking. They are light weight and easy to prepare for the amount of food they have. They say they are two servings, but I'm a lean guy and can easily scarf one down by myself, especially on a trip when I'm hiking long distances.

Dont get to excited

As most of you know, almost anything tastes good in the mountains.. so that being said, these things are alright, a good variation if youre burnt out on ramen noodles.. but if you eat them at home, you will not be impressed

Wow

I hiked Lone Peak in late August and was STARVING for a good meal when I reached the top. This was WAY more than I was expecting from freeze dried food. Tasted so good that I wish I hadn't needed to share with my husband because I know I could have eaten the entire thing myself. I even thought about buying some to make at home for an easy dinner...that may be going too far:)

Fits the bill

After a long hike, this stuff is pretty good. Reminds me of Chef Boyardee. Very tasty. Easy to make, just add two cups boiling water. I prefer the Lasagna & Beef Stroganoff , but this is pretty good too.

best mountain house meal I've had

Doesn't compare with what you can make at home, but for a freeze dried meal that's light to pack, this thing was awesome. It's definitely coming on my next backpacking trip!

Responded on

FYI - The directions on the package call for 16 oz of water, but I find this to be WAY too much (unless you want it to be really soupy). I think 8-10 oz of water is more appropriate, but I've never actually measured. I usually just pour in enough water for everything to get a little wet, stir it up, and let it sit. If it's not totally hydrated a few minutes later, it's easy enough to add a bit more water.

Yum

Delicious meal with great flavor. I use this as single serving after a long day of hiking and I typically add less water than called for to keep it thick and hearty. This is definitely a staple in the backpacking menu.

Pretty Good.

My first freeze dried meal. It's not exactly fine dining, but it's not bad. It's about Chef Boyardee quality. Pretty good after a long hike.

Food

You are not going to boycott your favorite Italian restaurant after eating this but it is ok. You can eat out of the package and it is enough for 2 people if you are not super hungry. I don't add as much water as they recommend, about 4 ounces less, you can always add more if needed.

Not aldente

The pasta is a tad mushy for my taste. I've always liked my pasta aldente. The flavor is good, but a little parmesan cheese rounds it out nicely. Two packages will satisfy three hungry hikers after a day on the trail.
