Part of the charm of National Park stays is the evening cookout. When the weather is right and that is the case in Zion most of the time, you can't beat it. The setting is stunning so even a fancy restaurant would have a tough time beating the view and there's something about sitting outside as the day cools off into night and enjoying a hearty meal, especially after a day of hiking. Though we have a small backpacking stove, we also brought our three burner stove for our car camping meals which makes preparation a lot easier and quicker.
Favorite Dish: Though we mixed it up more on this trip than on prior ones due to the six month length, we did a fair amount of pasta meals. I am half of Italian descent and I like cooking. I try to make it healthy (whole wheat pasta, olive oil, tuna or beans) but Doreen seems to think it's pretty tasty too. Tuna fra diavlo is a favorite at home and camp. Saute some garlic, basil, and hot chillies in olive oil. Add a can of tuna and a can of crushed tomatoes. Let it simmer while the water boils for the pasta. Add it and sprinkle with good pecorino cheese. Oh, good luck finding that in Utah!
Comparison: least expensive
Directions: Find a spot with some shady trees and a level picnic table, and you're set.
Price: less than US$10
