Chef Kelly Macdonald picks an Italian farm recipe for a high carb bomb that will keep your energy up on the trail. Dried potatoes, cooked with a little pasta, sun dried tomatoes, some dried herbs and finished with parmesan. Delicious, nutritious, and packs a carb punch.
Ingredients (Serves 2)
- 1 cup of dried potatoes
- 1/2 cup of pasta (Cappelletti survive well in a back pack)
- 1/2 cup of sun dried tomatoes, course cut
- 1/4 cup of powdered parmesan
- salt, pepper to taste
- dried mushroom dust to taste
- dried oregano to taste
- 2 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
Boil half a cup of water and start your potatoes, cook about 10 minutes to get the potatoes soft. Add tomatoes and pasta; cook on medium. Here’s where you are going to add a little more water if you need it. This is not meant to be soupy, but more dense without being dry. Let this simmer a few minutes to thicken the sauce and cook the pasta. When the pasta is al dente, add the parmesan and cook until the pasta is the density you enjoy.
