Taste

This entree tasted great from the very first bite. However, if you are expecting long strands of spaghetti like you get at Papa Luigi’s down the street, you will be mistaken. Mountain House has chopped up the spaghetti into one inch pieces. This makes it more manageable and less messy when you are eating it out on the trail.

The dish has just the right ratio of sauce, meat, and spaghetti. I found the sauce to be very tomato-ey and very tasty. It was also slightly spicy, but I rather enjoyed that. From what I could tell, the meat was ground beef, which tasted great. Also, the pasta was just right. Not overcooked or mushy.

Leftovers

This was a one serving pouch, but I did save some to have leftover. Like all Mountain House entrees I have had, this dish tasted great leftover. The sauce tightened up a bit and the dish settled into itself. So, if you have this dish in your food storage, you can count on it tasting great the second time around.

Bottom Line

This was a great dish. It lives up to the high standards of quality that Mountain House is known for. It would be great on a backpacking trip or as part of a long term food storage program.
