and Barilla three cheese torellin in a packet just add water?
has anyone tried these in the field?
Never tried them in the field, but I've cooked them at home plenty. I think the boil time is pretty quick. This is a great product, but I foresee a problem in the field. They swell to 2x-3x their uncooked size. At home, I cook them in a huge pot. You would need a pretty large pot to cook these in the field. I have the 1L Evernew titanium pasta pot and even this pot would not be big enough.
But, I am going to try it first before I give up on this product in the field. I'll cook these in the 1L pot at home and give it a try. I already have a great sauce recipe in mind: Cook the tortellini and leave a little boiling water in the pot and add some half and half packets, some shredded parmesan cheese, freeze dried tomatoes, red pepper flake, onion salt, and garlic salt. Simmer for a few minutes until thick. You got yourself a nice little pink alfredo sauce.
