  • 4 oz angel hair pasta
  • 5 oz can chicken breast
  • 2 T diced sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 c thinly sliced dried crimini mushrooms
  • 1⁄4 t diced dried garlic
  • 2 T herbes de provence
  • 2 T shelf stable parmesan cheese
  • 1 T extra virgin olive oil (1 packet)
  • 3 c water
  1. At home:
  2. Break the pasta in half and stash in a small zip top bag. In a sandwich bag pack the tomatoes and mushrooms. Crush the herbs with a small mortar and pestle, or rub with clean fingers – then pack in a snack size bag with the cheese and garlic. Stash the chicken can and oil packet with it.
  3. In camp:
  4. Add the tomatoes and mushrooms to a 2 Liter pot along with 3 cups water. If at high altitude let soak for 10 to 15 minutes, otherwise put the pot on a high flame and bring to a boil. Add in the chicken, bring back to a boil, add in the pasta and gently boil for time on pasta package.
  5. Drain off the remaining water, leaving behind a Tablespoon or two of pasta water. Add in the oil, toss and then toss in the seasoning bag. Let sit for a minute or two to meld and then enjoy!
