If you like canned spaghetti, then you will be in heaven because this is at least a step above that. I've never tried Freeze Dried (FD) meals before but my wife and I are planning on doing some hiking over the next few years and we need to know our options. Since I cook most of our meals (and I'm not bad at it), I was concerned because the wife no longer cares for most canned foods.
I followed the instructions with 2 cups of boiling water and after about 10 minutes it was still a bit soupy. However, soupy sauce is not a bad thing as long as is thick enough.
I thought is was decent but the big test was when I gave the wife here portion. After consideration she declared that if she's in the middle of the woods, it will make a wonderful meal. As I did nothing to garnish it or alter it in any way, that was high praise indeed!
