Cathy's notes for this recipe:
I came up with this recipe because we love the Creamy Four Cheese Rice A Roni and I needed a side dish for last years Thanksgiving dinner at my Mom's. The flavor from the Rice A Roni is delicious and adding the broccoli,mushrooms and water chestnuts took it over the top! Makes a great addition to your holiday meal or any family gathering! Enjoy!

Made this last night. I didn't add the onion, mushrooms, or chestnuts due to picky eaters in my family...but it was a big, big hit. They all loved it.
