Sure, beef Bolognese may sound kind of basic, but the flavors are deep and miles ahead of what most other backpacking companies are making. You need a pot to boil the pasta for this dish, but everything else is easy to prepare. There’s an upside: With just-add-water pasta, the manufacturer decides how al dente you want it—and often it’s not toothsome enough for my liking. With this method, I can control my pasta chew.

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.

    Decent meal, but not great. One of their heavier meals weight-wise. Given the high weight/nutrient ratio and the average flavor, I don’t think I’ll buy this again.

    Sure, beef Bolognese may sound kind of basic, but the flavors are deep and miles ahead of what most other backpacking companies are making. You need a pot to boil the pasta for this dish, but everything else is easy to prepare. There’s an upside: With just-add-water pasta, the manufacturer decides how al dente you want it—and often it’s not toothsome enough for my liking. With this method, I can control my pasta chew.

    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.

      Yum! Love this one. Yes, it's a little bulkier than others, but worth it if you've got the room. One of my favorites.

      Decent meal, but not great. One of their heavier meals weight-wise. Given the high weight/nutrient ratio and the average flavor, I don’t think I’ll buy this again.

      Prep was a little more involved that I originally thought. If you are tight on water, especially in desert conditions, this pack uses a decent amount of water. Other than that concern, the whole dish rehydrated really well. Words can't explain the flood of amazing.
