Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like home cooking I've tried about 12 or 15 varieties of dehydrated meals, and generally go with simple ramen and Idahoan potatos. But sometimes I treat myself to a real meal. They're usually sort of 75% there - either they have parts undercooked or they're too soupy or too salty. In fact I've never bought the same flavor twice. This one however, I will buy again. It's reasonably light (in weight), and downright good taste. Good calories. And the pouch was a perfect amount for my meal (I'm a male, 200 lbs).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good food after hard day backpacking Tried this after an 18 mile day of backpacking the AT. Loved it and will buy it again. This may be my favorite of all the freeze dried meals I have tried. I bought it because it said spicy and it was what I expected and it satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I almost had to fight my buddy over it! This was a really great meal at the end of a long day hike! In fact, my buddy was soooo jealous when I let him have a taste of it. I will admit, I always bring salt and pepper on hikes and this definitely needed some to amp up the flavor a little. The other negative is that there isn't a lot of sausage in it, but overall it hit the spot! I (and my friend) will definitely buy this again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Package might have tasted better I had high hopes for this when I saw it in the store, so picked this up and another AAF for a recent trip. After a hard 20 mile day, I was ready to relax with a good hearty meal. A few bites it, it tasted like it was more spice than anything else, despite the appearance of sausage & pasta. I re-stirred it again, just to make sure everything was in order, and it still tasted the same. Barely made a dent in the portion and satisfied my hunger with trail bars and gorp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually tastes like food I actually think this freeze-dried meal tastes like real food, and I could even eat the entire package without wanting to die. Freeze-dried food kind of sucks, but this one was actually great. The pasta cooked well, and it was well seasoned without being overpowering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good portion and decent flavor Bought this to try something new and wasn't disappointed. Tastes good but a bit heavy on seasoning for me (I don't generally add much seasoning to any of my food). The portion size is good for a high output day. No complaints and will continue to try other AAF meals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Serious Flavor - Good Pasta I have recently started to try AlpineAire meals to see how they...fair. This was my first one. It was better than I expected and therefore I will purchase it on multiple other occasions. Thumbs up, very decent. Can't go wrong with this one.
