1 lb. lean ground beef
1 box Rice a Roni Long Grain & Wild Rice
1 2/3 cup water
1 can Progresso Recipe Starters Creamy Portabella Mushroom
In a large sauce pan brown ground beef. Add Rice and seasoning packet. Add water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered about 25 minutes or until rice is done. Add Starter and heat. Serves 6-8 depending upon appetite.
Comment: I found a box of Rice a Roni in my pantry and spotted the can of Progresso Starter and decided why not. I had originally planned on this being a casserole type dish but the Starter is thinner than I thought so I made it into a soup. To make this into a casserole, omit the water and use the Starter for your liquid to cook the rice. This is one yummy dish. I'm actually glad it turned out as a soup. The ground beef and Portabellas along with the wild rice made a perfect blend.
