    MakeDollarHoller's Note:

    This recipe makes the gravy from the seasoning packet included in the Rice-a-Roni, so there's no additional expense for the gravy. Got to make a dollar holler! :)

      I'm not going to select any stars. This recipe did not work for me. It is very puzzling because I see that Chef Shapeweaver thoroughly enjoyed it. I keep thinking the meat/pasta/rice mixture needs more liquid that just the one egg. Our meatballs turned out extremely dry and "gummy". I hope others will try this -- I would very interested in knowing what their experience was. Thank you for posting the recipe.

      I'm sorry but this was not to my liking. I made as directed (excepted added a bit of finely diced onion and garlic for flavor). By the time the meatballs finished simmering all the water had been absorbed and there was only about a tablespoon of thick liquid remaining. Nothing left to make a "gravy" from with the cornstarch slurry. The meatballs themselves were tasteless and dry.

      Before getting started with the review, I'm pleased to be the first to rate this.This recipe was made on 3/20/12 for " Spring PAC 2012 " . While I was mixing the rice mix and egg, some pepper and onion flakes were added for a bit of flavor. Just to prevent sticking,the meatballs were browned in a bit of oil.Then the water and seasoning packet were added and covered,turned to low and left them simmer for 30 minutes, they were removed and the cornstarch/water mixture was added. Then I used a whisk to blend the mixture in well.The meatballs were then returned to gravy and left to simmer for about 5 minutes,just long enough to heat through.Both my SO and I really enjoyed the taste a lot.I served them with mashed potatoes & sweet baby peas. Thank you for posting a recipe that will be made again. " Keep Smiling :) "
