A cheaper version of the classic Rice-a-Roni mix. I hate paying high prices for the foods my family loves and try to recreate as many as possible.



Put pasta into food processor and cut into about 1/4 inch pieces. Add equal parts of rice to the mix.

To cook, determine how much mix you need for the meal. Add butter or oil to saute pan, add onion and pasta mix, heat mixture until the pasta turns golden brown. Add water and your choice of bouillon Add mushrooms and simmer until tender.

Does anyone have a homemade recipe for the herbs in Rice a Roni? I would like to use brown rice instead of the white rice in most of their boxes.

This curried rice mix is an interesting complement for plain chicken or pork.

Inspired by reading about Rice-a-Roni. We don't have it here, I made my own version. Result: a lovely smoky-tasting mix, very unusual.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until evenly distributed. Put about 1 1/3 cups into three 1-pint containers and label as "Chicken Flavored Rice Mix".
