Campfire Baked Pasta
- precooked noodles
- chopped garlic
- baby spinach
- chopped tomatoes
- goat cheese
- salt & pepper
- olive oil
- tin foil
- Start your fire about a half hour before you want to cook over it. I read somewhere that if you can hold your hand over the fire for just 5 seconds, then your temperature is good.
- Rip off a rather large piece of tinfoil. In the middle of it place some noodles, a chopped tomato, handful of spinach, a dollop of pesto, some garlic, and as much goat cheese as you want. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil on top. Now wrap it up as best you can ( I had to add another piece of tinfoil around it).
- Place it over the grill of the pit and cook it for about a half hour, flipping it a few times. Take it off the grill and let it cool for a few minutes before you dig in.
To make this easier on myself, I precooked a package of spaghetti noodles at home, tossed them in spicy olive oil and put them in a large ziploc bag in the cooler. I also bought a jar a minced garlic (by far the BEST thing we bought food wise for camping) and made a container of pesto at home. It was a bit of work before we left, but was totally worth it when we got there.
What do you like to make while camping?
