    Prep Time5 mins
    Cook Time25 mins
    Total Time30 mins
    Course: Side Dish
    Cuisine: American
    Keyword: Homemade Rice-A-Roni, Rice-A-Roni®, Side Dish
    Servings: 6 servings

    Ingredients

    • 1 tbsp Ghee Alternatively, you can use olive oil or a combination of olive oil and butter.
    • 1 cup Rice, preferably long grain white rice
    • 1/2 pound Thin spaghetti, broken into 1/2"-1" pieces Alternatively, you can use regular spaghetti.
    • 1 small Yellow onion, peeled and grated
    • 1 small Garlic clove, peeled and grated
    • 1/2 tsp Salt
    • 1/2 tsp Turmeric
    • 1/4 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon Dried parsley Alternatively, you can use 1 1/2 teaspoons of fresh parsley finely chopped.
    • 2 cups Chicken bone broth or chicken broth Alternatively, you can use beef bone broth, beef broth, or vegetable broth.

    Instructions

    • Place a skillet on the stovetop and set to medium heat.
    • Add the ghee to the skillet and allow it to melt.
    • Once the ghee is melted, add the thin spaghetti and rice to the skillet and sauté until lightly golden, approximately 2-3 minutes.
    • Add the onion and garlic and continue to sauté until fragrant, approximately 1-2 minutes.
    • Add the salt, pepper, turmeric, and parsley to the skillet and stir.
    • Add bone broth or broth to the skillet. Stir and bring up to a boil.
    • Once the mixture comes up to a boil, place a lid on the skillet, turn the heat down to medium or medium low (you do not want the mixture to boil), and allow to simmer for approximately 20 minutes until the bone broth or broth is absorbed and the rice pasta mixture is light and fluffy.

    I wonder what breaking up spaghetti in a blender would sound like?

    I'm usually not into sugar, but Jello Pudding cups are on my list whenever I get a root canal/implant/bridge/other.

    This is awesome. Sub any kind of protein for the spaghetti, and you just made biryani. Or, leave out the spaghetti and you have a pretty decent pulao/pilaf.

    Come to think of it... what's the point of the spaghetti here??

    It fries more than the rice and adds a non spaghetti soft slimy  texture. Never had it other than the boxed stuff. 1970 cooking at it's best

    Need about 70 gallons of kerosene  to fill the tank. Was under 4 bucks a gallon.  Looking like 12 to 14 bucks if I find it picking it up five gallons at a time. Got shut off for bigger deliveries at over 7 bucks locked in for bigger deliveries......damn

    found it down near boston and driving it north once a week, pain in the arse at ten gallons a trip to maine

    cant wait to run that 88 in the boat. the e10 rots the gas lines well enough, the 88/e15 will just dump more gas into the drinking water supply. took me most of the summer to find the leak under the cowling this year, who knows how many gallons went overboard

  • The key figure is diesel prices. Everything that you buy is shipped using diesel fuel and often produced using it. Home heating oil? Essentially diesel fuel.

    was hoping i could use diesel in my kerosene monitor. the consensus was that it would work but not burning as clean the monitor would soot up and choke out the fire eventually.  since im not there all week, that wouldnt work for me. hoping we dont get a -20 degree extended cold spell this year

    Probably because I'm so close to the source. Any closer, and I'd be in Saudi Arabia.

    $3.30ish in SE Nebr. and can get $3. or so if cross Missou River into Iowa.  Not really Southy in either place, but Kansas and Missouri are sitting right underneath.
