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!
Simple dish that everyone enjoyed. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I found this recipe when I googled homemade rice a roni. I quit buying the box stuff as it has MSG and plenty of other not good things in it. This is super easy to make. I like another reviewer used angel hair as I have lots of it in the house. I also added minced onion, chives and garlic with the pasta. Used beef broth as that is what I had open in the fridge. This is awesome and I love that it's not loaded with preservatives, etc. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Quite delicious, and so much better than the box of convenience. In fact I actually found this much easier to make than out of the box. However, I did use orzo pasta in place of the spaghetti, but even with spaghetti i'm certain i'd still feel the same about this recipe.
This is a great base for Rice a Roni. I am going ot use this as a base and that way I can make any flavor I like. Tonight I am making beef with some parsley, onion and garlic, the other night I did a vegetable broth with veggie seasoning that had to much pepper in it. I am going to make up some base batches to have on hand so I don't have to break the spaghetti all the time. I love to have a lot oa back stock of food.
This is a great base recipe. You can add whatever you want to it. I did find that I needed at least a cup more water in order for the rice to not be crunchy.
