Adventure Food's Pasta Bolognese is part of an interesting range of meals from this supplier. Freeze dried foods are not as tasty as freshly prepared stuff so structure your expectations! Having said that Adventure Food seem to be one of the best - from reviews and personal experience - and after a day on the hill the satisfaction bar is lowered somewhat.
On a long trip I'd take these meals for perhaps one third to half of my meal requirements providing the rest from non-freeze dried products - especially local and fresh stuff. Combining in this way balances the need for 'real' food with the need for keeping your pack weight down.
Long dates on Adventure Food as well - so if you don't eat everything on your next trip there's always the one after.

|8.5||MARK'S TASTE TEST - I'd increase the score to 9.5 with fried onions, which I added to mine. I followed the instructions on the pack then added fried onion with the water. I gave it longer to reconstitute than it said and added salt. The result was excellent - a good taste and a good texture, really enjoyed it and the onions gave it a lift.|
