Meatball Veggie Cheesy Rice

There are certain pre-packaged foods that I love to use when I’m running short on time. Flavored rice packets and frozen meatballs fall into that category for me so don’t be afraid to use pre-packaged food when you need some help in the kitchen. Fresh and homemade is always best but sometimes after a long day you need something you can make in 15 minutes that isn’t chicken nuggets and boxed mac & cheese every night. So enjoy this quick and easy recipe!

Meatball Veggie Cheesy Rice


  • 14 frozen meatballs
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 package Knorr Creamy Chicken Flavor Rice and Pasta Blend
  • salt
  • pepper


  • Chop up zucchini, green pepper, mushrooms, tomato, and onion.
  • Throw all vegetables into pan with frozen meatballs until vegetables are soft and meatballs are warm and cooked. (You can also cook the meatballs in the microwave before putting them in the pan if you want to speed up the process)
  • Cook the Knorr rice and pasta package according to the instructions (either on the stovetop or in the microwave).
  • Add rice and pasta mix to the pan with the vegetables and meatballs, add salt and pepper, and enjoy!
