Otherwise known as “whore’s pasta,” Spaghetti Puttanesca is an, um, satisfying, rich meal with enough carbs to keep you going all night long. Packit Gourmet's Market Pasta Puttanesca strays a bit from the traditional recipe (typically a briny tomato with garlic, anchovies, capers and olives), but it tastes damn good and is a snap to prepare.

frequently asked questions

Why is a Cook–in–Cozy™ recommended?
 

We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.

    Absolutely the worst backpacking food I have tried. None of the flavors melded together with the sause simply bland and the vegetables over powering any other flavors there might have been. All finished off in the end with a very unpleasant bitter aftertaste. Will not ever try this one again.

    I would say that this was one of my favorite meals from the sample pack that I ordered. There was a generous portion and the taste was awesome. I loved this. I don't know if I should be thinking about backpacking food now that my trip is over, but I am. This was not just good backpacking food, but good food. Can't wait for my next trip

    Otherwise known as “whore’s pasta,” Spaghetti Puttanesca is an, um, satisfying, rich meal with enough carbs to keep you going all night long. Packit Gourmet's Market Pasta Puttanesca strays a bit from the traditional recipe (typically a briny tomato with garlic, anchovies, capers and olives), but it tastes damn good and is a snap to prepare.

    frequently asked questions

    Why is a Cook–in–Cozy™ recommended?
     

    We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.

      Absolutely the worst backpacking food I have tried. None of the flavors melded together with the sause simply bland and the vegetables over powering any other flavors there might have been. All finished off in the end with a very unpleasant bitter aftertaste. Will not ever try this one again.

      I would say that this was one of my favorite meals from the sample pack that I ordered. There was a generous portion and the taste was awesome. I loved this. I don't know if I should be thinking about backpacking food now that my trip is over, but I am. This was not just good backpacking food, but good food. Can't wait for my next trip
