      If I didn't know it wasn't Rice A Roni, I wouldn't have known it wasn't Rica A Roni! We LOVED it! We usually eat the chicken and mushroom flavor, so that is what I attempted. I replaced the broken pasta with orzo because I already had it. I used 2 cups of water and a tablespoon of Better than Bouillon Chicken flavor, plus I added 2 or 3 dried shitake mushrooms (broken up) and some garlic powder and onion powder. Oh and a little dried parsley. I browned the pasta and rice together like the original, and cooked it for 20 minutes after adding the liquid. Also, when it was all done, I added a splash of Half and Half. It was AWESOME! Next time, I think I will add just a bit more bouillon. Awesome recipe! Thanks so much for sharing!

      I made this tonight and it was sooooo good and easy!! I loved that I get to choose what i want in it. The only thing i did different was i added 1 clove of garlic and 1/4 onion chopped at the begining. My husband is pretty picky, so this is nice because i can make his (beef- will use beef instead of chicken broth) and mine (this recipe) without having to waste 1/2 a box of each. Thanks so much for sharing this! I will definatly have to make this again!

      I've made rice this way many a time, and it's good to see that others enjoy it, too! I usually use thin angel hair pasta instead of of spaghetti. There are a lot of things you can add in to this recipe, as well, such as dried minced onion, chopped green onion, almond slivers... all sorts of things. Just as commercially-produced Rice-A-Roni is versatile, so is doing it the old fashioned way. :)
