    You say 1 1/2 pasta but do you mean 1.5 cups of pasta before or after it has been dehydrated?

    I have a question – I am going to make ten servings of the kale Mac and cheese, I won’t have dehydrated pasta, I’ll cook it at the campsite. Should I multiply the added water by 10, so instead of 1/4 cup it will be 2 1/2 cups?

      If you will use regular pasta, just cook it as usual then drain the water off, reserving enough water to rehydrate other ingredients. Then stir in the sauce mixture.
