To save space in a canister, I repackage them into snack size baggies, which works out perfect. You will have to open the sauce packet and dump in over the pasta, otherwise it won't work. Since the pasta is hollow and/or has lots of space, there is room for the powdered sauce to fill in. I need to study some of the freezer bag cooking meals, Sarbar has a cookbook out and an online sight too, which I haven't checked out yet.
Maybe it is just me, but if I have to look at one more: "Temptingly delicious, feeds two, freeze dried, just add boiling water" meal, well...it is all a pack of lies....causes the fierce southern winds too, if you get my drift. While backpacking, I too usually take 1 or 2 of these $8.00 meals along for security, but I would rather eat anything else...anything.
Oh, one tiny but important related question: peanut butter is the staff of lunch; what's the best way to stuff it into a bear canister? On the previous JMT trip I used a tube; wrong. Peanut butter all over the inside of the protective (whew!) outer bag and basically unusable.
