Copycat Rice A Roni

Rice-A-Roni is one of those things I always buy that just seems natural.  I quit buying most things from a  box a couple of years ago, but just never could bring myself to give this one up.  Until last week.  I took the plunge and nobody in my family even noticed that it was homemade….it was THAT close to the original.  YUM!

Here is what you need

Spaghetti noodles

1 Cup rice

3 tsp chicken bullion

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning

2 TBS butter

2 Cups water.

20130929-192300.jpgMelt your butter in the microwave and then pour over your ingredients.  Cook until the rice and spaghetti begin to brown.  Don’t burn it!  Stir constantly. Set aside.

Pour your water into a saucepan and boil.  Add your rice mixture to the boiling water.  Cover and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. (Until all the water has been absorbed.)
