Carbonara Pasta by MONTyBOCA

Who doesn’t love bacon!? Why not throw it in your pasta with some eggs and cheese for this elevated, extremely filling meal. (And if real bacon doesn’t work for you, you can substitute it easily.)

For anyone who doesn’t want to lug full eggs on the trail, powdered eggs are a great, lightweight addition for fast and filling protein. And I guarantee they won’t taste like cardboard. This fancy pasta dish is sure to make it on the packing list for all of your treks.
