    Roxi's Note:

    Also affectionately known around our house as "ugly casserole". I don't remember where I oringinally found this recipe but I've been making it for over 15 years. Everyone in the family loves this stuff. I hope your family will enjoy it, too.

      This was a little dry. I will make it again using another 1/2 cup water. Thanks for the recipe.

      This dish is awesome, I didn't have two boxes of rice a roni so I used the one box i had (italian garlic), and filled the rest of the box up with white rice (only half of the box was full) When I mixed it together I put extra italian seasoning and garlic to compensate for the white rice. I also used fresh onion like the other commentors. When you are supposed to stir during baking, I added a good amount of kraft parmesan cheese.

      The Italian version of this was definitely good!
