I had a box of beef Rice-A-Roni on the shelf so I thought I'd give this recipe a try. I went to Rice-A-Roni's website; they have quite a few good-lookin recipes to make with Rice-A-Roni and Pasta-Roni mixes. One thing that caught my eye about this recipe is one of the ingredients is a pre-cooked meat, deli roast beef.
I love it when I can save time by using meat that's already cooked! This dish was very good; creamy, beefy and satisfying. Try it, I think you'll like it! *smile*
