5.7 oz (159 g)
Cold Soak, Cook, Dehydrator Not Required
Gluten-Free, Kid-Friendly, Low-Sugar, Nut-Free, Vegetarian
parmesan cheese, shelf-stable
rice ramen noodles (substitution)
angel hair pasta, precooked and dehydrated (substitution)
reduced-sodium option; measurement is volume of cooked pasta before dehydrating
salt substitute (substitution)
Discard ramen noodle spice packet.
Put noodles in a bag or container to be used in the backcountry.
Put the remaining dry ingredients in a separate bag to be stored inside the noodle bag or container.
See meal prep tip below.
Pack 3 Tbsp (42 g) olive oil in a leakproof container to be added to the meal when consumed. We recommend double bagging the oil in the event there is a leak.
Remove the parmesan herb packet.
Add 8 oz (240 mL) hot/cold water or enough to cover the noodles.
Let stand to allow the noodles to rehydrate. This will take approximately 7 minutes if cooking the meal and 30 minutes if cold soaking. Avoid over-soaking noodles as they will become mushy.
Consume or properly discard the noodle broth to practice the Leave No Trace principle.
Add parmesan herb packet and 3 Tbsp (42 g) olive oil to the noodles.
Stir to mix well and enjoy!
VOLUME OF MEAL WHEN PREPARED
Heaping 1/4 cup pesto mix per serving (dry)
MEAL PREP TIP
If preparing the meal for long-term storage, we recommend not adding the parmesan cheese until just before consuming the meal. By doing so, the shelf-life of the meal will be lengthened significantly.
Total sugar (per serving): 2 g, including no added sugar
To reduce sodium by 671 mg, replace the ramen noodles with angel hair pasta and table salt with a salt substitute as desired.
To reduce calories by 120, reduce olive oil volume by 1 Tbsp (14 g). We do not recommend leaving out all of the oil as some oil is required to create a pesto sauce.
