Armenian Rice and Noodles

Armenian Rice and Noodles created by Ms B.

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."

    It's a keeper! I love the taste of the fried vermicelli and my DH is crazy about it. Even my picky husband likes it.

    wow this was really good and so easy to make! Thanks for sharing this great dish! I added a little garlic and parsley just for funsies and I think it really enhanced the flavor. This is a keeper for us!

    Very interesting combination but very delicious. I was afraid that my family wouldn't like it but it went over very well. I have enough left over for a second meal so I hope it reheats well!
