Sometimes the hours of the day fly by quicker then expected and you arrive to your camping destination rather late. Your tired, yet on top of needing to make dinner, you also have to set up camp. It is either getting dark or it is already nighttime and with all of the lengthy tasks ahead of you, spending time making dinner shouldn't have to be one of them.

Barilla  makes a fully cooked al dente pasta choice that is perfect for times like these when you just want to eliminate a lengthy time  cooking. Although one can simply pour some spaghetti sauce right from the jar,  a couple of minutes heating up the sauce is all it takes to have a hot quick meal.

Some suggestions what to make with Barilla Ready pasta:

CHILI MAC:  Just open a can of chili and heat it up and pour over the pasta with some cheese ^ sour cream and voila.

Mac & Cheese: Heat up either heat up a package of liquid cheese or packet of dried cheese with hot water and pour over pasta wait 2 mins.

Pasta Alfredo: Heat up your favorite alfredo sauce and pour into bag and let sit 2 mins.

Cold Pasta Salad: Just add fresh tomatoes, onions, olives, artichoke hearts, and your favorite vinaigrette or balsamic vinegar (try white balsamic)

Mexican Pasta: Heat up your favorite salsa and pour over pasta, add cheddar cheese, black olives, cilantro and a dollop of sour cream (packets).

Italian Pasta: All you need is your favorite jar of pasta sauce heated up and pour over pasta while adding fresh parmesan cheese and basil.

Smaller sized pastas cook faster. For example angel hair cooks faster than linguine. Ditalini, pastini, orzo, etc

Angel hair cooks faster then a majority of the pasta out on the market, but yet it still takes a lot longer to cook than the pastas listed above. Also the above pastas do not require water to cook it meaning that much less water one has to bring with them for their camping meals.
