I also like to add minced garlic to saute with the onion to taste and a handful of grated Parmesan cheese at end of cooking time. This is good! Recipe courtesy of Paula Deen.

Great recipe! I make this and add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Tumeric for the yellow color! Tumeric is what they add to the box to get the color and the taste is very good and mild.

Tasty and quick. I added a small squash with the onion, also added beef broth. Thank you for a great side!

This is a very nice side dish. I added about 1 t. minced garlic when the pasta was just about done browning. I used minute rice rather than long grain rice and it worked out fine. The dish only needed to simmer for about 6 minutes and both the pasta and rice were done perfectly.My only suggestion is to add a little salt to it in step 3 when you add the rice, onion and parsley.
