Introducing… Beef Bolognese

Introducing another classic crowd-pleaser: Beef Bolognese!

This Italian staple, carefully remade for the backcountry, is a dish that the whole family will enjoy. It’s hearty, filling, and packed full of both protein and colorful veggies. It’s perfect for everything from a midday ski lunch to a campfire special to a quick and easy dinner at home. You can even pair it with some red wine for date night! 

Our new freeze-dried Beef Bolognese camping meal features delicate pasta, beef, and the traditional vegetable trio of carrots, onion, and celery in a Ragù that will take you straight to the Italian countryside. Note flavors of garlic, red pepper, and oregano.

The Ingredients:

1. Pasta: When exercising, it is important to eat enough complex carbohydrates to keep your energy levels sustained and even throughout the day. The pasta base in this dish does just that. Better yet, the funky shape of this pasta keeps this dish as fun as the outing you’ll enjoy it on. 

2. Beef: Beef is an excellent source of high-quality protein, containing all the essential amino acids needed for muscle repair, growth, and maintenance. It’s also high in essential nutrients, including iron, which helps transport oxygen throughout the body and fights iron-deficiencies, which can be common in athletes. 

3. Tomatoes: The tomato base in our classic Ragù sauce is packed with essential antioxidants, including vitamin C, beta-carotene, and lycopene. Tomatoes are also great for your heart and help reduce inflammation, which is important during or after long days on your feet.

4. Veggies: Our Beef Bolognese also contains a colorful blend of carrots, onion, and celery, which provide essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can sometimes be difficult to get on trail. 

5. Traditional Spices and Flavors: No Bolognese would be complete without oregano, garlic, and red pepper. This exciting flavor profile hits all of the notes you would find in a traditional Italian Ragù, allowing you the finest Italian dining experience even in the backcountry.
