I'm so happy I stumbled across this recipe! It was SUPER delish! I sauteed half an onion and a few cloves of chopped garlic in olive oil (ran out of butter!) followed as directed but used water and beef base instead of a can of broth..sooooo yummy...but by the time the liquid absorbed the rice was still crunchy...and my pork chops called for wine so I figured I would throw in a few glugs and WOW, it was sooooo good! Honestly, I think I turned it into a risotto, but I won't complain! It was thick and creamy and delicious! I honestly think I could eat it daily it was so good. Thanks for the great recipe!!!
I've made this 4 times now and everytime I do something a little different to go with whatever I'm cooking. I did try it the first time with brown rice, and it did not work out at all, it never did get done enough where it wasn't crunchy. I will keep making this, it sure is easy and delicious!! I think I even like this better than than Rice a roni.
What a great recipe! I found this while I was planning for supper and I even had all the ingredients in the house! I added the onion and garlic as suggested by another reviewer and it was delicious! I look forward to trying out other variations with this recipe and I make this often. Thanks for sharing this easy side dish!
I`ve made this a few times now & it seems to get better each time,very easy & low in cost to make,i like it a lot more then the packaged rice-a-roni because my partner has many allergies & the packaged stuff drives her insane.Thanks for posting a great,simple,easy to make & tasty recipe Lisa.
This was so tasty. I changed it a bit because I didn't have the exact ingredients on hand. I put 1/2 pkg Knorrs Veg soup mix, 1 pkg Liptons cup o' soup, 1 cup rice, 1 cup spaghetti, 2 tbsp margarine, 1 tsp oil. Fried these ingredients until noodles were brown. Then added 4 1/2 cups of water. Turned the heat halfway down and covered until the liquid disappeared. It was great and the kids loved it. Thanks for the recipe.
I made this recipe a number of times as I don't like all the sodium and chemicals they put into food these days. In fact, I go to food.com every time I want to find a recipe I can make at home using natural ingredients. This is the only rice a roni recipe I use because it is so easy and the taste is fabulous! So versatile, too, by subbing the stock and adding your favorite spices. I use Gamesa Fideo 100% semilina pasta because it is already broken into small pieces just like in rice a roni but use angel hair pasta when I run out. Can't go wrong with this recipe and you'll always know what you're eating when you use natural ingredients.
This is super easy to make and was delicious. Like some of the other reviewers I made this recipe using angel hair and it turned out excellent.
My new favorite side dish. I used gluten free spaghetti and it worked great. I also added garlic powder , onion powder and dry parsley. It was a perfect copy of the boxed version. Thanks Lisa A !
Made this for supper tonight and it was a big hit. I used Knorr's Chicken Bouillon (powder) for the broth. I don't normally like it as a broth but it did really well in this recipe and I was able to almost duplicate Rice-a-Roni. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
I was having a problem with the boxed rice-a-roni. It didn't have the flavor it used to and it somehow now is very mushy after cooking. Not what I remembered as a child. Found out rice-a-roni (all of their products) is GMO now. This is absolutely fabulous! The entire family loves this cause it is what rice-a-roni used to be. Since discovering this recipe, I've made this at least a dozen times...can't get enough. A huge THANK YOU to you, LisaA!
