The San Fansisco Treat~HOMEMADE!
I saw this recipe on The Rachel Ray show one day last week it was quite intriguing! She made HOMEMADE Rice-A-Roni! I grew up eating the little box version at least once a week so I had to try this one. Seriously now,the thought that you could do it at home never even occurred to me but it turned out pretty well.The flavor is subtle and not nearly as salty but still good.
I didn't measure anything really but here is how she made it. 1 Cup broken pasta noodles(I used whole wheat spaghetti and some regular linguine) olive oil chicken broth(or stock) salt pepper butter 1/2 tsp parsley 1/4 tsp or so of sage and thyme brown the broken pasta in some olive oil for about 6-7 min add the chicken stock,butter, and seasonings then simmer until all the liquid is absorbed.
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
