This homemade one pot backpacking meal is worth washing a dish for - it combines orzo pasta with a spicy and flavorful sauce that will fill you right up after a long day of exploring.
1/2cupfreeze dried or dehydrated vegetables
3ozsummer sausage or jerkyoptional - omit to make this meal veg friendly
Pre-Trip: Place the pasta, freeze dried vegetables, tomato powder, Creole spice, and salt in a resealable bag. Pack along the olive oil and summer sausage.
At Camp: Empty the contents of the bag into your cook pot. Add the water and olive oil and bring to a low boil. Cook for about 10 minutes or until the pasta is tender, making sure to stir fairly often (especially towards the end) to prevent the food from scorching and sticking to the bottom of the pan.
In the meantime, cut up the sausage or jerky and add to the pot as the rest of the meal is cooking to heat through.
Remove from the heat and enjoy!
