Although actual use is always classified on these kinds of bids, our information is that these are purchased for the executive branch use, not for our troops in the field. That usually means these go to underground bunkers for continuity of government use by strategic military leaders, congressional members and sometimes even White House staff or leadership. As always, we opened several cans to try these out before we offer them to you, and these tortellinis were amazing: soft, cheesy, and very tasty. Preparation: To prepare the tortellini, fully soak the desired amount of tortellini in cold or warm water for 5 minutes. Bring water to boil and place rehydrated tortellini into briskly boiling water. Cook for 3-5 minutes stirring frequently.Once cooked, they look just like regular tortellini that you would make at home. There was no shrinkage when we cooked them. You can expect 25+ years shelf life as long as the tortellinis are sealed in the can - and probably as many as 30 to 40 since there is no water or oxygen in the can to spoil them!!!
