A combination of fine egg noodles and long grain rice makes this side dish a savory change-of-pace. Judy Barry of West Milford, New Jersey seasons the pilaf with minced garlic, fresh parsley and a little butter.
It's a snap to change the spice level in this popular rice side dish by choosing a milder or hotter salsa. "It's an easy accompaniment to burritos or tacos," suggests Molly Ingle of Canton, North Carolina.
