Red Beans and Rice is rated 1.4 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great BEFORE the pasta was added. This has been a staple in my house for more than a decade - we use it so regualrly that we buy in bulk from Amazon Grocery since it's not always in stock at our local store. Imagine my shock when this classic dish suddenly showed up with pasta in it. Yuck! Now, pasta has it's place, we use several of the pasta-based Lipton/Knorr sides as well, but that place isn't in Cajun Red Beans and RICE. It decreases the substance of the dish, the pasta presents a slightly slimy texture next to the rice, it cools at a different rate - it's very displeasing. It's not just me, either - my husband was displeased, the rest of the family now asks that I not use it in dishes - so far there hasn't been a single poistive reaction. Please, PLEASE, change it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from "Rice & Pasta Blend" ruined this side. A few years ago while at a supermarket, my girlfriend and I picked up the Knorr's Red Beans & Rice packet to cook along with a Mexican themed dinner. The seasonings and the rice were wonderful and had we not made it from the package we wouldn't have known it wasn't homemade. It tasted absolutely great, and we made it at least twice a month for over a year, though eventually we bought a rice cooker and started making our own from scratch. This week however, looking for something quick and remembering how good this was, I purchased a packet of Red Beans & Rice and was thoroughly disappointed that the recipe had changed from being all rice to being a "Rice & Pasta Blend." The noodles sitting in the rice make an unappealing contrast of texture and do not absorb flavor as well as the rice; in all honesty they make the dish feel slimy and taste bland. In addition, it seems the seasoning recipe has changed as well, as overall it is less flavorful, but I am not completely certain if the recipe has changed or if the noodles are simply making the taste off putting by themselves. I am very disappointed in this change and will no longer be purchasing any of Knorr's Rice Sides as long as they continue to have pasta in them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed! Our family loves Red Bean and Rice, BUT last month I bought a packaged and noticed it smelled funny. I figured it may had been a change in ingredients so I proceeded to cook it. None the less, it tastes worse than it smelled. It tasted like rotten pactacios! A few days ago I decided to get another package and try it again. It was the same exact disgusting taste as the last time I purchased it. Something has to be going wrong with production because the expiration date isn't for another month. Very very disappointed.
