The Best Dutch Oven Spaghetti

I am sharing another one of my favorite camping recipes for all of you Fabuless campers out there. Introducing Dutch Oven Spaghetti, also referred to as Goulash.

This camping dinner recipe is really filling after a long day of hiking. As someone who has cooked for many hiking trips, this is one of my go-to meals. It’s definitely one of the best dutch oven pasta recipes out there!


I first learned this recipe from my friend Ryan, who is super experienced at cooking over a campfire and dutch oven cooking. This particular recipe feeds about 20 people, but you can modify it to feed less if you cook in a smaller dutch oven. You can also modify it to make more if you cook it in a 16-inch dutch oven. It’s really easy to modify!

To make this recipe even easier while camping I have included a few preparation things you can do at home that will really simplify and speed up the process for making this meal.
