Total Time 15 mins
Servings 2


  • 8 oz Pasta
  • 2 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbs Nutritional Yeast
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • Chili Flakes to taste
  • 2 Tsp Parsley
  • 1/2 Tsp Oregano
  • 1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder


  • Add in the pasta to your pot, either on your camp stove or your kitchen stove. Add in enough water so that the pasta is just covered (see recipe notes for more details).
  • Bring the pot to a boil, and cook pasta until al dente, usually about 6-10 minutes depending on what type of pasta you used. 
  • When the pasta is done boiling, make sure you still have a little water left in the pot.
  • Add in the olive oil, salt, and spices, and mix to combine.
  • Serve and enjoy!


This recipe doesn't have exact measurements for water because it can be customized to any type of pasta. Just fill up the pot so that the pasta is just covered. Don't worry if you add in too little or too much water - you can either add more in later, or pour off a little when the pasta's done. You just want a little bit of water left over at the end, to make the creamy "sauce". Enjoy!
