    Crabzilla's Note:

    My Aunt Helen used to make this to accompany her Sunday Rib Roasts or a thick and juicy London Broil. Aunt Helen passed away twenty years ago but her Rice Pilaf recipe remains a favorite of ours. It's very simple to prepare, no frills, but very tasty.

      This is what I have been looking for. My grandma uses vermicelli pieces just like this recipe, but I have never used it to make rice pilaf. Thank you for sharing!

      This was great - I keep forgetting that I can make all this stuff from scratch instead of opening a box of Rice A Roni - tasted just like Rice Pilaf should to me and I'm completely impressed with myself. Thanks for posting!!!

      Aunt Helen's recipe is really a treasure! Thank you very much for sharing. I've prepared it several times and am so pleased to be able to easily serve such perfectly delicious rice. I use only a third cup of angel hair pasta pieces which is plenty. I also use homemade stock and increase the salt to a teaspoon. Thanks again!
