I’m always looking for simple quick recipes that I can use hiking/camping that are quick and easy. Snagged this recipe from allrecipes.com.

Snagged this recipe from allrecipes.com.
The below Ingredients are for one serving but on the site you will find the default is for four servings. 
I first tried this recipe at home and I liked it.  It was quick and easy.
I changed a couple of things:
1.   I don’t like cucumbers so they were out!
2.   I left a little bit of water that I used to cook the noodles to soften up the peanut butter.
3.   I was too lazy to mince the garlic, so I used garlic powder instead.
Since I liked it I loaded into MyFitnessPal. Once it loaded all the ingredients it showed that it is 629 calories per serving. Which sounds perfect for a day hike.
The next day hike II prepared the ingredients (other than the noodles) into a zip bag and cooked up noodles on the trail using my MSR Pocket Rocket
