“My daughters call this "Noodle Rice" and we have some variation on it several times a month. I've used broken spaghetti, vermicelli, and orzo in place of the egg noodles (choose eggless pasta to be totally vegan...well, duh, you knew that!) I also usually throw in a handful of golden raisins with it and up the water just a bit to account for plumping them up - the kids eat those first! Be creative...substitute a little lemon juice for part of the water if it's going with fish, etc. A nice, reliable add-on to dinner, originally from "Betty Crocker's New Int'l Cookbook."”
