I'm glad I came across this recipe. If you like Rice-A-Roni, this is your home made version of that dish. I happen to like it and my favorite part about this dish were the different textures. The rice, the noodles (I used Vermicelli) and the crunchiness of the Water Chestnuts provide that. I did cut down on the butter and used 5 tbs. instead. The area that I feel could be improved upon is the flavor, the dry onion mix gives it a subtle flavor but I think that it could be better by adding diced celery, parsley, and/or other herbs and spices. Be careful with the salt! I used 1 1/2 pkg. of Onion soup mix. I'm interested to play with that part of the recipe next time because it has potential to be great but this is still extraordinary as it was written.
