Homemade Rice a Roni….

I really like those little boxes of Rice a Roni. Bad thing is, they’re loaded with salt. But they come in handy and make a great side dish. The combination of rice and noodles….Yum!

The other night, I was looking for a side dish for some beef that I cooked. I had some leftover rice and some leftover angel hair pasta. Hmmmm, I thought…….I will make my own rice-a roni!!! 

It was really good. Super simple too. It was pretty basic, but you could add whatever you want and make it your own!

Not much else to say about it, so let’s get to it….

Homemade Rice a Roni

angel hair pasta, cooked and cooled
leftover rice, chilled (don’t use just cooked hot rice. It will be mushy)
1 chicken, beef or vegetable bouillon cube ( 1 cube per 1 cup rice and 1 cup pasta)
black pepper
chopped chives or green onion
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup water

Melt 2 tblsp butter in a large non stick skillet. Add the water, garlic powder, bouillon cube and black pepper. Add the pasta and rice and gently stir it all together. Don’t over mix or you will have a glumpy mess. Once heated through, add the chives or green onion. Serve immediately.
