If you grew up in the 70's and 80's and owned a tv ( who didn't?) you had to have heard this jingle . Disclaimer: Once you listen to this little jingle you will be singin' it all day--just sayin'!
Growing up during these eras you probably would have had a box of Rice-A-Roni or two on the pantry shelf. We would gobble this stuff up! And I must say, when I became a new homemaker I used my fair share of this stuff too. I mean who cooked rice from scratch anymore? Seriously.
Over the years, as I have tried to remove most processed foods from my families diet, I had to adapt some of those favs to a "healthy version". This is one of them. It's easyyyyyyyy, trust me here. Tastes 100 % better than the boxed stuff!
On to the recipe:
Melt the butter til foamy then saute the rice and pasta.
Now add the broth and spices and stir well.
Bring to a boil then cover and turn the heat to low. Cover and cook for about 15-20 minutes stirring in between. When broth is absorbed season with salt and serve hot.
