By adding a few fine egg noodles to a rice pilaf, you can have a deliciously different side dish. Terrific with fish, this dish also goes well with meat or poultry. —Kathy Schrecengost
Oswego, New York
1/2 cup uncooked fine egg noodles or broken vermicelli (1-inch pieces)
2-3/4 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
In a large saucepan, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add rice and noodles; cook and stir for 3-4 minutes or until noodles are lightly browned. Stir in broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 20-25 minutes or until broth is absorbed and rice is tender. Stir in parsley.
