Note: this is the same item as our Italian Meatball (updated 6/20). Everything is exactly the same between recipes (ingredients, nutrition info, etc...), we simply had to update the Name per new regulations. For more info, check out our blog.
Bring your Italian restaurant favorite to the great outdoors with this delectable feast of meatball flavors, featuring ground beef in a low-carb marinara sauce, with decadent mozzarella cheese, zucchini, and a mix of Italian spices. Warning: your fellow hikers will ask you to share.

This is the best overall backpacking meal taste and texture. I add noodles to make it great.
I've been doing keto for a couple of years and managed to shed 60 lbs. When i spend a week on a back country hiking or kayaking trip, I don't want to stop the carb-free diet just to be able to bring freeze-dried along. next-mile solved that dilemma and in a very tasty way. This meal is one of my favorites. Great taste, good mouth feel and just the right amount of spice. Hard to go wrong with this one.
The taste was better than expected, lots of cheese. Few ingredients. I love the low carbs! Thanks for making these. Just powered through a big trail day with no belly issues and good energy level. Going to order some more.
Received with seal broken and they won’t replace it.
Hi Ran. As we mentioned in our emails when you first reached out, the seals on your packaging look crooked but complete based on the photo you sent us. Regardless, we were absolutely willing to replace those meals, and we sent you a pre-paid label to return them to us and we'd get new ones shipped out to you. We specifically choose USPS returns so that your regular mail carrier can just pick up the return at your normal mail time, and you never even need to leave your house. However, despite that, you told us 'Too much work to send those back'. Again, as we mentioned in that email, we're happy to exchange those meals with the crooked seal if you change your mind about sending them back. All the best, The Next Mile Meals team.
Trip had to be cancelled for lack of water! Will respond after the next trip. Thanks!
