Noodle Rice Pilaf Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/2 cup uncooked fine egg noodles or broken vermicelli (1-inch pieces)
  • 2-3/4 cups chicken broth

"Loved this dish. May add in 1/2 teaspoon chicken stock powder next time for a little added flavour, but otherwise a perfect recipe. Whole family enjoyed this and scored it 10/10. Thanks for an awesome recipe."

"Definately keeping this rice recipe! My son who normally doesn't like rice had 3 servings! Maybe it was all the butter (which I may try to halve next time) and Jasmine rice, but it was perfectly delicious. I also noticed the liquid was cooking out before it was done, so I just added a little water. I would like to try it with the veggies added."
