    Deliciously good

    I took this meal down to Escalante last weekend and this was my first time having this meal. I was very impressed and I would definitely buy it again. Tastes just like some Mac n Cheese you would eat at home.

    Yup

      Agreed that it needs more time than what the instructions say, but this meal is seriously delicious!

      good meal

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

      great meal it taste good and feels you up but i recommend mixing it a lot and letting it set for a extra 5 minuets

      Had better

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

      Yes, it is subjective, but I found this meal to be more utilitarian than tasty. Hungry and need nourishment? Then this will do. Are there better tasting meals? Yep.

      Cant go wrong

      As a professional macaroni enthusiast, I have had nearly every type of macaroni there is. Considering that this is backpacking food I had some pretty low expectations but WOW. I dont think Ive had macaroni from an italian diner this good. 100/10. Bought one to make at home and I just ordered 5 more. EDIT: I never use the suggestion amount of water, I used 1 and a half cups instead of 2 and it was perfect.

      YUMMMM

      I'm picky about my freeze dried meals -- but this one is a win! Good caloric intake, and pretty tasty.

      SO GOOD YOU"LL DIE

        Just eat it.. you're in the mountains.

        Seriously...

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        ...The most delicious freeze dried food I've ever had. Totally delicious and I even ate it with having screwed up cooking it and some noodles were still crunchy. I will definitely pick this up for my next adventure into the backcountry!

        Great for space food

          Some times they're too salty, sometimes they're lacking flavor, sometimes they don't reconstitute. But this guy is just right. hits the nail on the head. Good flavor, good calories, quick to saturate, light to pack. filling enough for two.

          Tasty!

          One of the best dehydrated meals I've had. Definitely throw a few of these on the list for your next backpacking trip.

          really good

            Tastes great. I used less water and let it sit long to avoid the watery mac soup

            Yum!

              Perfect dinner after a long hike!
              Easy to make, and tastes great.

              Awesome!

              This is a great camp meal! After a few miles on the trail it helps to 'feel young.' I added less water than recommended, stirred extra well, and left it to sit a little longer than recommended - it turned out great and the pasta fully softened! I really liked this meal, but the Leonardo De-Fettuccine had mushrooms that really made the meal. The veggies in this one are great though! The package says two servings but you won't want to share if you've had a long day with a heavy pack - but could be supplemented with some extra protein if it needed to feed more than one person.
