Model: Outpost Cheddar Herb Pasta
This isn’t Kraft. Instead, the thick, warm comfort of sharp white cheddar and Parmesan cheeses mix with sage, rosemary, and thyme to create a decadent sauce. “This is real comfort food, and it really hits the spot if you’re hiking hard or facing a bitter cold adventure,” said one tester after spending a late-fall night out in the Mojave Desert. To prepare, just add ¾ cup of boiling water to the resealable bag, then wait 10 minutes. In order to beef up the calorie count of each serving (290 calories), some testers added tuna or slices of salami.
