This recipe is great my kids love when I make it. I got this recipe from my mother-in-law she made it all the time. You can use any flavour of Rice A Roni be creative. Enjoy!!

These were easy to make. I thought they would be dry so I put some A-1 on them but they would have been fine without it.I couldn't find a 10oz box of ricearoni so I used a 6 1/2 oz one.I had to cook it a little longer to absorb all of the water. Pretty tasty!
