Mountain House – Lasagna With Meat Sauce
After 14 miles of hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park, we fired up our JetBoil and prepared Mountain House’s Lasagna With Meat Sauce. This was by far one of our favorite Mountain House meals.
The meal was filling at 600 calories, but would be just a snack if split between two people. The pasta itself rehydrated very wall compared to other brands which still had some crunch left after preparation. The sauce itself, while simple, tasted great. The calorie-to-weight ratio was so-so, but the meal still packed a punch with 35 grams of protein and plenty of electrolytes.

Preparation couldn’t have been easier. Simply heat two cups of water to a rapid boil, pour the boiling water into the pouch, let it steep for just under ten minutes, and serve directly out of the pouch. Just don’t forget to take out the oxygen absorber, although your meal will still be safe if you forget.
This meal tastes like your average, run of the mill lasagna, which is saying a lot of dehydrated camping food. Our testers were curious and prepared one package hot (following the directions) and one package cold (letting the dried meal steep in cold water for 30 minutes). Both were surprisingly tasty.
So if you’re short on water or it happens to be a hot day, the versatility of Mountain House’s Lasagna can come in handy.
