Savory Noodle Rice Pilaf

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.

    This was very good. Great alternative to Rice A Roni without all the additives. I used thin spaghetti broken into small pieces which was the only time consuming part of making this. Otherwise, very quick and easy with ingredients I always have on hand. I did up the chicken bouillon by another 1/2-1 tsp, but it probably didn't need it. A definite keeper.

    I found this receipe and wanted to make it but I didnt have egg noodles so i used spaghetti broke into small pieces. I browned it with the rice in a skillet and at the last minute thought of adding peas. It was so good. I will never buy the box rice dishes again. Thanks
