I make it exactly like my rice pilaf.
1 C Rice, long grain
4 Tb Butter
2 Nests of Angel Hair Pasta (about 2 Oz.)
2 C Chicken/Beef/Vegetable broth
Thoroughly rinse and drain the rice.
Melt the butter in a 2-quart saucepan. Crumble the pasta nests into the butter. Brown the pasta in the butter. The butter and the noodles should turn a fairly dark brown (more than golden brown but less than burned). It is the browning of the butter and noodles that really gives the pilaf its flavor.
Add the rice and cook over medium heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer, and simmer, covered, for 25 minutes. Don't open the pan to look or stir.
At the end of the cooking time, turn off the burner and let it rest in the pan (covered) for 5 to 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
