My Review

The name “Cheesy Lasagna” may be a little deceiving. Obviously this being a package meal, it wasn’t really a traditional layered lasagna. It was more of a pasta dish with all the flavors of a beef lasagna. The noodles that were used were small tagliatelle noodles which helped it resemble a lasagna a little more. Had they used elbows or spiral noodles, it would have been weird.

This package served 4, and we prepared it while camping on the beach. I loved the fact that is was a “just add water” preparation. This made it extremely easy and aside from stirring it occasionally, there was no other prep involved.

The taste was fantastic. I thought that all the flavors of a lasagna were there, except maybe for the ricotta cheese. As I said, the noodles were small and flat and slightly curly. The tomato sauce was very good. Sometimes pasta dishes can have an acidic quality, but this one was perfect. It also tasted like it had been prepared from scratch… not like the canned ravioli or pasta dishes you find in the grocery store.

This product was incredibly easy to prepare, just add water.  I love that there weren’t any other complicated steps or several packets to open and add throughout the cooking process.  Just one package that gets added to boiling water…. Perfect.  It also has a 7 year shelf life.

Cons:

This particular meal didn’t resemble actual lasagna, however the flavor was excellent.

The Importance of Meal Planning

Knowing what you will be eating and preparing while at the campsite is just as important as planning what gear you will be bringing. Having a planned meal schedule will help you make sure you have accounted for every meal before you even leave the house. There is nothing worse than finding out on day 5 of a camping trip that you only brought and planned enough for 4 days.

Just like a camping checklist, a meal schedule will force you to look at how many days/meals you need to plan for. Once you have a schedule figured out (like the one below), you can then create a meal plan and a grocery list and check items off as you go.

Meal_PlanTake into account any activities you might be doing while camping when making your schedule. For instance, if you are going on a trail hike, you might want to pack your lunch with you and stop for a relaxing picnic on the trail.  In the example above, I have it planned for wednesday, but obviously if you wake up on tuesday and decide you need to hit the trail, then you can adjust the schedule.  The point is to have it “planned” so that you prepare and bring along the appropriate type meal (in this case a packable lightweight meal).

Also, be sure you have at least one bad weather meal planned. Hopefully you won’t have to use it, but if you have done much camping you know that weather does not always cooperate. Make it something easy that doesn’t need to be cooked in case of rain. MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat) are a great alternative.  I always have a few in my camp pantry just in case.

Finally, plan quick easy meals for while you are packing up camp at the end of your trip and for when you are setting up camp once you get there. You don’t want to have a complicated meal right after you’ve spent an hour or two setting up camp.
