    Lightly Toasted's Note:

    This recipe is from my favorite aunt. It's a big hit in her family, and great comfort food. And it's so easy that her bachelor sons can make it themselves. (of course, they'd rather have mom make it!!)

      We all love this recipe. We make extra gravy using the seasoning packet and water called for on the box. We thicken with cornstarch and bake in the oven for about 40 minutes at 350. Rice is always done. My children love it served over egg noodles.

      This is a comfort food I ate growing up. To get all the rice cooked we always added the seasoning and the water that the rice a roni box calls for then simmer the meatballs until the rice is tender. THen add the gravy mix.
