"This is my most requested recipe. It goes well with any meat, especially ham or turkey. My kids, though grown, still ask for this during family get togethers and holidays. It freezes well."

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a large pot, combine the rice, both packets of soup mix and water. Bring to a boil, then simmer over low heat for 7 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, crumble the sausage into a large skillet over medium-high heat. As soon as it begins to release its juices, add the onion, pepper and celery. Cook and stir until sausage is browned and vegetables are tender. Drain, and stir into the rice mixture. The mixture will appear soupy, but the rice will absorb the liquid while baking. Pour into a greased 2 quart casserole dish. Cover with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove the aluminum foil, sprinkle sliced almonds on top, and continue cooking for 15 minutes to let the top of the rice brown.

The box of soup has two packets of soup. You use both packets. The almonds are added when you mix everything together. This is an awesome recipe. My family loves it.

I agree, this sounds really good, but it is confusing. The recipe calls for one packet of soup, but the directions call for two and the almonds are mentioned nowhere. I guess I'll just have to...

Pretty good for a side dish, but I had to make changes because of ingredients on hand. I decided to use only 1 of the soup mix packages, used shallots, in place of onions & 2 andouille sausages....

LOVED this recipe. Took as a side for our Thanksgiving dinner, and made it again to take to another family dinner the following week. Had to double the recipe the 2nd time, and there was nothing...

Over processed and salty taste, because of the noodle soup mix I imagine. I didn't like it much. Essentially it was home made rice a roni...with out the home made taste.

Ok, this is quite I put the noodle soup and rice in the pot I realized...this is EXACTLY Rice-A-Roni! So if you want' to make it simpler just use 1or2 boxes of Rice-A-Roni chicken fla...

The recipe says "one package" of the soup mix, which contains 2 packets.."use both" Also, sprinkle the almonds over the rice, as stated at the end of the recipe. Very good by the way!

This recipe was delicious -- only 4 people and it was devoured. Highly recommend it, and thanks for sharing it.

Edible, not as flavorful as I expected with the soup mix and the sausage.
