  • At dinnertime, boil 1 1/2 cups of water and add the pasta. Bring the pasta to a boil and add the sauce and pepperoni.
  • Stir so the food doesn’t scorch and turn off when the meal begins to boil.
  • Let sit for 10 minutes to finish rehydration.
  • Sprinkle cheese over sauce and eat.
  • In Leave No Trace, after dinner use some warm water to rinse out the pot twice and drink the water.
