A true Italian classic! This savory meal combines a slow and long simmered tomato sauce, perfectly seasoned ground bison, red peppers, and still slightly crunchy quinoa. Satisfying and Delicious.

I actually had this for lunch at work. It was so delicious and easy to make, I used a kettle we have to heat the water and let it boil according to the package instructions. Although, I sort of eyeballed the water/food ratio...it worked out fine. I let it sit a little longer than instructed and stirred a few times to really distribute everything, but regardless it was a SUPER EASY and DELICIOUS midday meal. Filling, flavorful, healthy.
I ordered 2 more and some others. Hope there are more recipes soon.
When you open the bag you see huge chunks of veggies and meat. Despite the large large chunks the meal rehydrated in the time instructed on the package, which is a lot less than other brands of dehydrated meals. The flavor is unlike any dehydrated meal I have ever had, very delicious!
I finally got to try the one of Bushka’s Kitchen’s freeze-dried meals on my last backpacking trip. I tried the “Unstuffed Peppers” and absolutely loved this meal. The flavors were delicious, it was easy to prepare, and felt like I was eating comfort food while out in the wilderness. The unstuffed peppers have become my favorite free dried meal of all time so far. I can’t wait to try the rest of their meals on my next backpacking trip coming up.
Bringing busy people locally-crafted, healthy food is a worthwhile but lofty goal. But the unstuffed Italian pepper meal lives up to the challenge. It packs a pleasant, peppery heat, along with a delicious medley of herbs. Even the ground beef tastes well seasoned and of high quality, combining a home-cooked, from-scratch taste with a just-add-water level of ease.
Couldn't be happier with this out on the trail. With only a little hot water it's like you've slaved over a hot stove all day to make a home cooked Italian meal. The tomato sauce is tasty, the beef is nicely spiced and the combination of veggies and quinoa makes it a filling meal after a long day of whatever!
