I used to buy a lot of rice a roni type box mixes. Why did I buy them? They were cheap and you could find coupons for them.
But several months ago I found a recipe for homemade rice/pasta type dish. We really enjoy it as a side dish. It is really good. And really it is much better then the packaged stuff. My husband even likes it. So, I decided to add meat to it to make it a main dish. I used the beef version and added about 1 pound of cooked ground beef.
It worked well. My kids loved it. I loved it because it made for a quick and frugal meal. I now always try to keep some of the mix made up so I can have a quick side dish or dinner ready if I need one.
So, give it a try as a side dish or a main dish it is really good.
We love eating the beef rice/pasta mix with hamburger added. If you like Asian food, it’s really yummy with a little soy sauce on it. So GOOD!
Hi Lynn, the link is not working. Do you know what happened?
I would like to see the recipe also, but the link still doesn’t work. Is this recipe posted somewhere else?
@Lorrie, I think I now have the link fixed, but here it is again. I hope this is the onehttps://www.lynnskitchenadventures.com/2008/11/homemade-rice-a-roni-mix.html that you are looking for.
Great! Thanks so much Lynn — I’m putting it on my menu for next week.
Nice blog! 🙂
