Melt margarine in a 12-inch frying pan. Saute uncooked noodles until lightly browned. Stir frequently to prevent burning. Remove from heat. Add uncooked rice and remaining ingredients. Mix well. Place in a 9x13-inch pan. Bake uncovered, at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Note: If re-warming this dish, mix in a small amount of water so casserole does not dry out.
