My favorite MH entree.
- Ease of preparation
I prefer Pro-Pak versions of Mtn House entrees. The portions are just right, and the vacuum packed approach takes up less space in the pack when up high.
Otherwise, the content and taste is the same as the regular, 2-person, non-vacuum packed sizes. Boil the water, add and let sit a bit, then eat right out of the pouch, means high efficiency and zero cleanup. After use, pouches form nice closable small garbage bags for packing out.
Lasagne has a nice tomato spiciness with chunks of meat, and a cheesiness that sticks to the eating utensil.
All-in-all, it has a nice taste, is the right portion for one, and is easy to prepare and clean up after.

Easy to make and a very tasty option for long hikes and backpacking trips. It is great because it saves room and weight in your pack.
- Easy to make
- No messy cleanup
- Verging on too much food
This is a great option for long backpacking trips or even quick camping trips. I got several different entrees of Mountain House meals to test as a Ranger for The Dyrt. It was easy to make and tasted great. I like the Pro-Pak versions. They seem a little light and take up less space.
I tried this meal out at a campground in Michigan at Ludington State Park. It is a lot of food. Even after a long day of hiking the two servings were too much for me to finish. Feel free to share with a fellow hiker.
It is also great because there is little to no cleanup. Zip up the bag and throw it back in your pack to take out.

The perfect meal to store for an unforeseen extra day on the trail.
- Vacuumed packed
- Small size
I always carry one breakfast and one entree for each day on the trail. The breakfast is usually a Granola and Milk. The entree always a pouch (Chili Mac, Beef Stroganoff, etc). If I have a long day of hiking I might have a vegetable pasta entree for breakfast. Lunch is usually snacks on the move (jerky, candy, cereal bars, Clif bars, etc).
I like to carry a Pro-Pak as insurance in case I have to spend an extra night on the trail. This meal is perfect; at a little more than 4 ounces it is very light, and since it is vacuum packed, it packs very small. It folds in half to store at about the size of a large apple.
