Just wondering if anyone has experimented with dehydrated spaghetti.
Any good recipes floating around out there?

Yes, My wife  and I dehydrate spaghetti. She uses the dry sauce packet, not sure what brand, and then we mix it with the noodles and dehydrate it. Yhen for the meat we use either dehydrated  TVP or hamburger or freeze dried hamburger. We  add the meat when after or while we rehydrte it. It's easy to dehydrate spaghetti, I usually flip it over about 1/2 way thru to get it thoroughly dry.

I don't even have to dehydrate my favorite.  Barilla tortellini is cooked and dehydrated on the shelf.  A 10-15 minute soak in hot water and it's ready to drain and sauce.  I make up pesto before leaving home and take along some parmesan cheese for one of the best trail meals I could ask for.

QCHIKER, Thanks for the tips!
I'm yet to use my dehydrator (just finally got one), and I'm pretty excited to try some interesting things. I was thinking about adding squash and zucchini to it.
I know exactly what Barilla product you're talking about, sadly, I can't find them anywhere around here. I've made them a few times at home, and they're delicious.

I make a basic marinara with crushed tomatoes, Italian herbs, etc. and dehydrate that. I put the leather in the freezer, then into the blender to yield a highly concentrated powder. I guess because of the sugar in prepared marinara it tends to burn some when I dehydrate it.

I also like Wagner's chipotle cream sauce for spaghetti.

All with hamburger gravel.

In this thread I learned that there may be marinara mix to which I can just add water? I'll try that!

@buddero. That sounds pretty tasty.
I have a recipe that involves cream of mushroom soup being mixed with the marinara (amazing!) but I have no idea how cream of mushroom will dehydrate?
I just received my dehydrator, and as a trial run I'm doing some left over ziti, and a bunch of strawberries, just because I like strawberries.
I'll know how it goes in the morning.
How long do you guys normally dehydrate your fruits? Pastas?
