This tortellini dish is easily flavored with pesto, pine nuts, sun dried tomatoes and parmesan. An easy way to feed a small Backpacking group or double the recipe for a large group.
‘Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.’ -Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky
Backpacking is going in. Going into nature, the backcountry, a wonderful place that may surprise you but will never disappoint.
Nature changes you, heals you, soothes you. That is why I love to go in.
I also revel in ‘trail magic’. Trail magic is a phenomena I have only witness on the trail or anytime a group of people have overcome something difficult together and ‘magic happens’. It is when people go out of their way to serve you. Giving away one’s personal possessions to strangers just because they could use them or having a friend cook a home made meal at a trail junction for your group. It is through times like these that I feel we are all connected in some way. Barriers are broken, walls are down. Many individuals become one, like the Borg, but nicer. And yes, resistance is futile.
Today I share with you Mikes recipe from our last trip in the Cascades. This was cooked on our last night and was a gourmet delight that we looked forward to. All of the food is amazing on Mikes trips, that’s why we stalk his trips and sign up for them.

‘I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.’
