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.
- Brown beef in a skillet; drain off grease.
- Place drained beef in a large bowl. Add seasoning packets from rice mix, soup, and water. Whisk until thoroughly blended. Mix in rice and noodles from boxes.
- Place in a greased 9 x 13" glass casserole dish.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
- Remove from oven and stir thoroughly, making sure to scrape the bottom of the casserole, so the rice isn't sticking.
- Return it to the oven and bake 10 minutes more, sprinkling the onions over the top for the last 3 minutes.
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!
