  1. This sounds like a much healthier alternative to Rice-a-Roni. I'm thinking it could be adapted for a handy homeschool lunch! :-)

    1. Judy, thank you for your comments. We homeschool too and our boys love having this for lunch or as a side dish to a meal!

  2. I agree with Judy! Not only does it seem much healthier than the boxed alternative, it looks like something I could get them to help make (always good for a home-ec homeschool lesson, lol). This is definitely going on our to-make list! Thanks so much for linking up with Try a New Recipe Tuesday! Many blessings to you!

  4. Hmmm I have to try this! I love Rice-a-roni, but it's sooo expensive! And doesn't make very much! Thanks!

    1. Breana, that is exactly why we use this recipe. My teenage son can eat a box of Rice-a-roni on his own. It was only smart to do this instead! :-)

  9. Last time I tried to fake Rice-a-Roni my husband told me I shouldn't mess with a good thing, I should just make the boxed stuff. I made this and he genuinely could not tell it wasn't boxed. High praise :) Also my seven-year-old was a great help breaking up the noodles. Fun!
