Prepping Meals: Pantry Alfredo Pasta

I came up with this recipe for hiking, on Trailcooking, but it works great as a pantry prepper recipe. It can be stored in a mason jar, as a meal kit, or keep the components on hand to make. No draining of the pasta needed. Directions are given for pulling it together as a meal kit, for storage. Doubling it is easy for a family (you can use a pound of pasta, just add in an extra quarter cup water).

Alfredo Pasta

  • 7 ounces pasta shapes
  • ½ cup heavy cream powder
  • 1 Tbsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp dried parsley, if desired

In a snack bag:

  • ½ cup parmesan cheese (shelf stable, Kraft type)


Add 2 cups water to a small saucepan. Add the pasta bag to the pot.

Drizzle a little water into the butter powder, and stir until it is a smooth paste. Add more water if needed.

Add butter powder paste to the pot.

Bring to a boil, stirring often. Lower heat to a gentle simmer, put lid on. Cook for time on pasta package, stirring often, lowering flame as needed.

Turn off the stove, stir in the parmesan cheese slowly.
