Luxury Backpacking Meal: Italian Pasta with Crab
At the campsite, boil 3 cups of water then add angel hair pasta. Cook the pasta for about 8 minutes then drain the water a safe distance from camp or any water sources. Add olive oil, basil, parsley, and garlic powder. As you can see in the video, we used drinking straws to transport the right amount of spices. Finally, add the container of crab meat and stir thoroughly. Then enjoy this luxury backpacking meal.
This is an easy backpacking meal for those nights you want a more luxury backpacking meal. The use of crab and bold Italian spices make this a tasty meal worth carrying the cans of crab meat. We rated this on our Campsite Cooking Score sheet as a 3.4 so we definitely suggest you try it out.
