Serengeti Baked Spaghetti.





One common thread you will find in just about all of our camping recipes is they are cooked in a Dutch Oven. Dutch Ovens are available in many sizes, from 1 quart to 8 quart. Figure about 1/2 to 1 quart per serving and you will be able to determine how large of a Dutch Oven to buy. And my advice - only buy the best... and that means a "Lodge" brand Dutch Oven. Dutch Ovens can be used over the campfire, or for rainy days or when you need to accurately control the heat, they can be used in a conventional oven.



So I suppose these could be called "Dutch Oven" recipes. However, if you don't have a Dutch Oven, don't let it discourage you... however, I highly recommend one for the best results. For example, our Lodge Dutch Oven has indentations in the lid that allow moisture to drip back into the food. This results in very moist cakes and other dishes.

Remember that when you are camping, you are on vacation. All of you. So guys, give your wife a break and you do the cooking on your next camping trip.

Why is this called Serengeti Spaghetti? No reason really, other than it is somewhat of a tongue twister.



  • Spaghetti noodles.
  • Pasta sauce.
  • 1lb sausage (Italian or other)
  • 2 cups Mozzarella Cheese




Cook and drain spaghetti, then place in a Dutch Oven. Likewise, cook and drain sausage. Add Pasta Sauce and mix well. Finally add cheese to the top and bake in an oven for 20 minutes at 350 deg or on a campfire while watching progress.




Serve with garlic bread, Italian bread, Caesar Salad, wine, etc... the traditional Italian meal.
