Homemade Rice A Roni

Years ago, I saw Rachael Ray make homemade Rice a Roni, I can't find her recipe on the net any more, but this is how I make it:) I made it the other night for my side dish at dinner, it comes out very good:) I also add salt and pepper to taste.

1 tablespoon oil
1/2 pound pasta, vermicelli or spaghetti~~Broken up into small bits
1 cup long grain rice
2 cups chicken or beef broth
Begin by placing the oil in a pot and breaking the dried noodles into 1/2 to 1-inch pieces. Turn on the heat and stir the noodles in the oil until they begin to brown slightly. Add the rice and mix all together for a few more minutes, then add the broth. Stir mixture, cover tightly, and cook as you would regular rice, approximately 20 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork and serve.

How neat! Gotta love the rice-a-roni. I haven't had that in years but boy was it good! Now even better and more affordable homemade.
