We loved this! I followed the recipe as directed, except I used portabella mushrooms (they were on sale). I also mixed the melted butter with the crackers in a zip lock bag for easy distribution.
My husband went back for thirds and fourths. I will definitely be making this recipe on a regular basis! #AllstarsClassico
We loved the taste of the creamy alfredo sauce blended into this rice casserole mixture - such a nice change of pace from a typical "soup can" recipe. I love the suggestion to add broccoli and will definitely have to give that a try soon! :)
Super yummy! Doubled the recipe as I wanted leftovers. My hubby and daughter were very happy. My daughter doesn't care for mushrooms so I made a mini one for her without them. I took advice from another reviewer and mixed the cracker crumbs and melted butter together. Great tip! Ritz crackers would be good too.
We all enjoyed this and I will make it again. We do several potluck dinners throughout the year and this would be great! I added a bit of shredded cheese to the top before and used Ritz craCkers instead of saltines.
Next time I am going to make this with all wild rice, broccoli rather than parsley most likely I will leave the crackers off. It is a good recipe and a great one for personalizing.
I am overruling my husband on the rating of this. He gave it a 4, but he doesn't ever want me to make rice. I, on the other hand, loved this! I followed the recipe pretty exactly. I would not add any salt to this because the wild rice mix and the Classico sauce both have enough for those who tend to be salt-sensitive. You can always add more later! In other recipes I've made using cracker crusts like this I've always mixed the butter and crackers together, and I did that, too, but it does take a little more butter. This would be pretty good sized servings for 4. Thank you so much, Sandra! This was really nice!
I thought this was very good! The only thing that I did differently was to use crushed Ritz crackers rather than saltines. It was great, and I'm sure I'll make it again...next time, I think I will try adding broccoli!
Tastes great but not nearly enough for four servings.
