Wipped-up a variation of the coranary chicken casserole tonight - forgot to get the cream of chicken soup, so used a packet of alfrado pasta mix instead. Damn, it was good. Thanks for the inspiration Ezookiel

One I pinched from a DVD, but modified a bit:

I love this one because you only use one pot and there is next to no prep work involved.

Camping Spaghetti Bol

What you'll need:
- 2 tins of condensed tomato soup
- 1 sachet of french onion soup
- 500 to 750g of mince
- 3 onions diced up
- 1/3 bottle of cheap red wine
- 1 packet of 'pasta elbows' (or some other kind of fast cooking pasta)
- chilli/soy/garlic/pepper to taste (I use about 2 tbspn of chilli and garlic, splash of soy and lots of pepper)
- serve with cheese on top

How to cook:
- get your camp oven hot and throw your onions, and mince in until the mince has browned slightly
- put everything else in with another 500ml of water, give it a good stir.
- lets it simmer with the lid on for half an hour, stir every 5-10 min (until the pasta is cooked)
- serve with a sprinkle of cheese on top

It comes out really tasty and creamy and serves about 7-8 people

My cabonara


Start boiling the pasta with a bit of salt.

Chop the bacon up.You really want some onion and garlic to go with the bacon,
but if not it doesn't matter.

Grate some cheese and put it in a bowl with a couple of eggs
and a splash of milk,mix her up with a fork.Put in a little salt and loads of cracked pepper.

Get the bacon frying.

When the pasta's cooked (don't evercook it) drain it but leave a smidge of water.
I persnally like the spiral pasta.

Chuck in your egg mix and the bacon,stir for a while,eat.The eggs will cook with
the heat in it,you shouldn't really need to keep it over the heat for long.If at all.

You can put anything in this,roast chook,can of tuna,mushrooms,whatever.
Just make sure especially with tuna,get the cans with the chunks and don't put it in
till last or it will disintergrate with the stirring.I get the can's of chunks in olive oil,
a bit of the oil in there is nice.I've even used noodles for this and it came out good.
Thicker type noodles.Go easy on the salt,it's good to add to every bit of the cook,
but only little amounts.Remember the bacon has salt too.

I'm yet to have a complaint from this,it can be a bit on the rich side though especially
if you start throwing cream etc... in it.

Here's one I make all the time at home. Will work just as well camping, couldn't be easier and is great to get rid of left-over BBQ chook.

Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup (serves 1)
1pkt chicken flavoured noodles
1tsp curry powder
1/4tsp chilli paste (or too taste, I usually use sambal olek)
2 cups of water
A couple of handfuls of shredded BBQ chook meat (or frozen roasted diced chicken)
A handful of frozen mixed meg veg or fresh whatever turns you on.

Boil the water, break noodle cake into quarters add to water with all the other ingredients including noodle flavour sachet. Bring back to the boil and cook for 2 mins. Job done. For a seafood version just add shelled and deveined raw prawns or firm white fish pieces.

If that's too much of an effort, ditch the curry powder and chilli paste and just use a packet of either Trident Hot & Spicy 2 min noodles or Trident Tom Yung noodles (this is a great option for people watching their weight, lower fat and carbs than regular noodles).

Tuna bake


Jar of dolmio tuna bake sauce
500g spiral pasta
425g can of olive oil tuna
Bag of shredded cheese
Masterfoods paprika

Boil pasta with salt and oil in your water. A good splash of oil and a teaspoon of salt. Helps the pasta not stick together and not in your pan!! While its boiling make sure that camp oven is warm and slightly oiled. Drain your can of tuna.

Once the pasta is cooked place into your camp oven along with your tuna making sure its separated, and your jar of sauce and stir. Load up with cheese sprinkle with plenty of paprika put the lid on the camp oven chuck it on the coals and viola!!!! 20 minutes later u got the easiest baked meal on the planet. Do it in the oven at home its done in about ten to 15 minutes.

Serve with vegies or salad or if your like me just gulp it down on its own :)

Enjoy :D
