The Mountain House Pasta Primavera is a delicious combination of Zucchini, spiral macaroni, cauliflower, broccoli, red & yellow peppers and green beans in a creamy, parmesan cheese sauce. Made with a new compact vacuum pouch that keeps the food fresh for up to 5 years if not opened. With this new packaging, it won't expand at high elevations and takes up less space in your backpack. Just mix contents with boiling water in the pouch provided, let stand for a few minutes, and then serve; the resealable foil pouch helps retain warmth. A must for long term food storage. Perfect for camping, backpacking, or preparing for an emergency.
