AT HOME: Place the pasta and salt in a resealable baggie, the olive oil into a resealable container (or pack olive oil packets), and place the eggs, cheese, and pepper into a separate resealable baggie. Pack along the bacon jerky (repackage as needed).
IN THE BACKCOUNTRY: Put the pasta & salt into your cookpot and pour in just enough water to cover the pasta. Add the olive oil. Bring to a low boil and cook until the pasta is just al dente.Turn down the heat and add the egg and cheese and stir to combine (you can add a little water if too much has boiled off - you want to create a creamy sauce here). Remove from the heat, add the bacon jerky, and enjoy!
