1. One Pot Spaghetti Camping Recipe

One pot meals are your answer when you don’t want to bother with a large number of dishes. This spaghetti is so simple because you don’t have to boil the pasta and drain it. You actually just simmer the spaghetti noodles right in the sauce. You’ll brown Italian sausage then add jarred marinara sauce. Then you’ll add the pasta to the cast iron skillet and cook till tender. Top with some fresh basil and Parmesan cheese for serving.

2. Creamy Cajun Chicken One Pot Camping Pasta

This is one of my easy camping meals that uses simple ingredients with tons of flavors. Farfalle pasta is boiled in chicken broth and cooked till al dente. Then you’ll stir in pre-cooked sliced chicken breasts, fire roasted tomatoes, cream cheese, Cajun seasoning, jalapeno, salt and pepper and continue cooking until everything is heated through. Dinner will be on the table in 30 minutes or less!

3. Pesto Steak Pasta

Any large pot with a tight-fitting lid works for this recipe, I prefer using a cast iron Dutch oven over a campfire. You’ll heat a little bit of olive oil then brown some steak strips. Then, you’ll cook some garlic add some beef broth and cook the pasta till the liquid is absorbed. Toss with some cherry tomatoes and basil pesto sauce just before serving.

4. Garlicky Shrimp Alfredo Bake

This pasta dish is a great way to serve shrimp to the whole family without breaking the bank. You’ll make a simple homemade alfredo sauce that is so creamy because it’s made with heavy cream, mozzarella cheese, a few cloves garlic and a touch of red pepper flakes. A nice side salad with a little oil and vinegar dressing is the perfect pairing for this meal.

5. Greek Tomato And Feta Camping Pasta Salad

I like preparing this as one of my make ahead camping salads because it tastes even better if the flavors marry for a day or two. A simple homemade dressing along with pepperoncini peppers, feta cheese, green onions and Kalamata olives are the secret to this yummy salad. It can be served as a side dish or main dish if you add some cubed grilled chicken.

6. Pesto Ricotta Pasta Bake

I call this my “Lazy Man Lasagna” easy camping recipe, you won’t believe how simple it is to make this pesto pasta dinner. I love using Italian sausage because it already has Italian seasonings in the meat. By using oven-ready lasagna noodles, you just layer the ingredients together and bake in your Dutch oven.

9. Dutch Oven Mac And Cheese

This is one of my favorite cozy camping side dishes. It’s great paired with plain hot dogs, lean ground beef hamburgers or something fancier like these camping grill recipes. If you have leftovers, the next day, spritz a little nonstick cooking spray in the bottom of mini aluminum pie tins or a larger foil tray, pile in the mac & cheese, cover with foil and heat over hot coals. While it’s re-heating, cook eggs sunny-side up in a frying pan and serve over the reheated leftovers.

10. Dutch Oven Spaghetti And Meatballs

These homemade meatballs use a combination of ground beef and Italian sausage. You can make them at home and freeze them to take on your trips. I call these my “Drunken” Spaghetti And Meatballs. The name originated when we were camping in Arizona’s wine country and purchased a few bottles. I just had to dump a splash of vino into the sauce. It added an extra depth of flavor but didn’t taste like wine. Most of the alcohol cooks off in the process. If you don’t drink wine, you can just replace this ingredient with broth or water.

11. Dutch Oven Beef Stroganoff

My home-cooked original recipe called for boiling the noodles and rinsing in cold water but I wanted to make it easier for our next trip. So, my first step was figuring out how to make it in one pot over our camp fire. You’ll start with a medium-high heat to sear the steak. Then, reduce to medium heat to sauté the mushrooms, onion and garlic. Now, you’ll add the broth and bring it up to boil (this replaces hot water for cooking the pasta), then, add the pasta. Finally, you’ll incorporate the sour cream into the dish for that rich flavor and creamy texture.

This Dutch Oven Beef Stroganoff Camping Recipe by CampingForFoodies is ready for serving as it sits in a camp Dutch oven inside a campfire ring on a sunny camp day. The golden colored pasta is mixed with the creamy sauce and meat, all covered with bright green fresh parsley.

12. Dutch Oven Chili Mac

Talk about yummy winter camping recipes! This classic comfort food is one of my husband’s favorite delicious one-pot camping meals. I like cooking and serving right from my campfire grate. We eat big bowls of this on our cold weather trips.

13. Dutch Oven Lasagna

This recipe calls for fresh basil, parsley and mushrooms. Don’t shortcut this because fresh vegetables and herbs make a huge difference! I use tomato paste and red wine to create an awesome sauce. Then, layer with oven-ready noodles. This campfire lasagna is baked in one of the most versatile pieces of camping gear! If you want more Dutch oven camping recipes, we’ve got them!

14. Shrimp In Garlic Wine Sauce Over Pasta

I originally intended to make this garlic shrimp & cooked pasta over a campfire but had to use a camp stove as my heat source because we were camping without fire during a burn ban. This simple sauce uses a cup of dry white wine, but, you can just use chicken broth if you want to avoid the wine. See all of my tasty camp stove recipes!

15. Pasta In Sun Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

I like using ingredients you can easily find at your grocery store that are great for camp cooking because they add a lot of flavor and require minimal work. Sun dried tomatoes that are packed in oil have a great texture and are scrumptious! I combine chicken broth and heavy cream to create a rich and smooth cream sauce for this dish.

16. Dutch Oven Chicken Cacciatore

Premade camping meals allow you to get dinner on the table quickly after a long day of adventuring. This is one of my make ahead camping meals that I prep at home, freeze, then just dump and cook on a busy camping holiday. I have these meals stacked in the freezer of our trailer, then, put it in the refrigerator to defrost overnight. It allows me to pull it out at a moments notice to “dump and cook” or “dump and reheat”, depending on the recipe.
