Recipe Notes

This is a very simple recipe to make while camping. We measured out the ingredients before we left and just used a 16-ounce bottle of water to easily measure our 2 cups. Macaroni is my favorite food, and I had been wanting to try a camp fire recipe for a long time. This summer we finally did, and we will definitely be doing it again!
