Spaghetti and Elbow Macaroni

Spaghetti Dinner

This is not so much a recipe as a suggestion for a camp meal. If you have a camp stove, this is easy as can be.

I am taking my Webelos I den camping this weekend. We’re going to make this for dinner Saturday night. We’re going to serve it with fruit, salad, and garlic bread.

I like to precook the sausage as directed in the recipe. That way I have fewer worries about cross contamination with the Webelos handling the food and cooking than I would with raw meat.
