I love many of these Knorr 'side' dishes. I find they make a quick and delicious lunch just by themselves. I throw in a little tarragon, basil and a pinch of garlic salt to give it a little more flavor.(I put these in while the product is boiling) Sometime I even add bacon bits after it is cooked. They have many good flavors of noodles or rice but this one is my particular favorite.
