How-To Thursday: Angel's Rice

For my first Hot-To-Thursday, here's a recipe for one of the recipes I've been making the longest. It's established itself as a favorite and is easily adaptable. Adding veggies (especially broccoli and carrots) or meat if you're into that sort of thing (chicken is best) is absurdly easy. So... here's the recipe:

1/4 cup butter
1 cup angel hair pasta, broken into 1-inch pieces
2 cups instant rice (cooks in about 15 minutes)
3 3/4 cups prepared vegetarian vegetable or chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • melt butter in large skillet over medium heat
  • add pasta and cook, stirring constantly, until pasta is light brown and mixture sizzles
  • add rice, broth, and salt
  • bring to boil over medium-high heat
  • cover, reduce heat to medium-low
  • simmer 15-20 minutes or until water is absorbed and rice is tender.
 Variations: add veggies during simmer time or cook chicken separately and add later.
