homemade rice a roni! recipe works great. (tip: run noodles through food processer, i tried breaking them by hand and a knife and found this was the easiest solution). you can add beef cubes instead of chicken for stuffed peppers, you can also add in other herbs or veggies as well as garlic powder and such.
