      After opening the two boxes of the real stuff and finding them infested with some kind of critter I was so excited to find this recipe! I had tri-colored orzo on hand so I used that and basimati rice. Thank you thank you for the recipe.

      Great stuff! Can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet, as I've been using this recipe for a while now. I love rice-a-roni but can't have the pkg'd stuff because of the MSG, so this is perfect! Now I can have it whenever I want! It's very versatile, I have even done it up as spanish rice-a-roni using canned diced tomatoes and taco seasoning. mmmmm.... Thanks!
