Pastas are divided into two broad categories: fresh (pasta fresca) and dried (pasta secca). Most dried pasta is produced commercially via an extrusion process, although it can be produced at home. Fresh pasta is traditionally produced by hand, sometimes with the aid of simple machines. Fresh pastas available in grocery stores are produced properly by large-scale machines.
Today, we will explore Goat Cheese and Tomato Whole Grain Pasta For Your Camping Needs. This is a healthy variation of pasta that is not only good for your body, but also adds flavor to your camping.
- 1 Pound. whole grain spaghetti, cooked as per packing instructions.
- 8 roma tomatoes, chopped and seeded
- 1 lemon, sliced into 8 wedges
- 5 cloves garlic, minutely minced
- 1 cup of fresh basil leaves, coarsely chopped and washed
- 1 cup fresh and fat free goat cheese
- 4 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
This recipe creates 8 packets/servings of pasta – great for sharing with other campers. Prepare 12 pcs of 8×12 inches of heavy duty aluminum foil (use 2 for each packet). In a large bowl, toss together pasta, tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Divide pasta among 6 packets. Squeeze a wedge of lemon and spoon a few teaspoons of goat cheese into each packet then fold tightly into a parcel. At the campsite, cook packets on a grill over a fire for 10-12 minutes, shaking the packets halfway through cooking.
