This was a little dry. I will make it again using another 1/2 cup water. Thanks for the recipe.
We loved this recipe !!! It was so easy to prepare. I used the chicken rice a roni and it was delicious. Thank you 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!
This was delicious! I had to sub I can of golden mushroom soup for a cream of mushroom but it worked out just great! I also had some leftover minced onion and celery in the fridge so I added that and some garlic powder to the ground beef while browning. To get my family to eat more of this I just had to brown the rice and vermicelli mixture, but U did use the same pan as the ground beef and it only took about 5 minutes, so it didn't add alot to the prep of this casserole. I also decided on a whim to add about 1 teaspoon of curry powder into all the ingredients (it added WONDERFUL zest) and baked as directed. This would be an amazing pot luck dish as well as a hearty family meal. I just thought it was so easy and flavorful. Thanks so much for sharing this Roxi.
I needed something in a hurry. Wow. LOVED IT. Now i used ground turkey instead of beef, and I used Cheesy Rice A Roni instead of the original. Oh and fresh onions instead of Can. YUMMY !!! I will be making this again
Haven't tried this recipe, but my family Rice-a-Roni casserole as well. Ours was without the onions and cheese instead. We have used many different soups and rice-a-roni variations, too. Always good!
Our 18yr old said it was awesome!!!
