"Not only a staple of Middle Eastern cuisine, this rice dish is also a beautiful bed on which to showcase many dishes. It is fast, simple, and a welcome change from plain, steamed rice."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

uncooked basmati rice, rinsed and drained
1/2 (8 ounce) package
uncooked fideo noodles
chopped fresh parsley
This was pretty good as an accompaniment to an assertive main dish. Does not have a lot of flavour of its own, but a good background. Would use veggie broth instead of water next time. Thanks!
This was great - I used Uncle Ben's precooked Basmati rice only because the regular only came in a very large bag and was very expensive....I substituted Angel Hair pasta for the fideo noodles (looked that up on-line) - the texture is great and the flavor wonderful - I used with a beer flavored shrimp scampi - would go with a tangy sausage or any variety of seafood....will make again
SORRY BUT THIS HAD ABSOLUTELY NO FLAVOUR. HAD TO ADD FAIR AMOUNT OF SALT AND BUTTER TO MAKE IT PALATABLE. I HAVE A SIMILAR RECIPE WHICH CALLS FOR CHICKEN BROTHER INSTEAD OF WATER AND WHAT A DIFFERENCE. THIS WILL NOT BE IN MY MENU ROTATION.
Great. I used angel hair pasta, broken in thirds, and it worked fine. Next time, I will break the pasta into smaller pieces before cooking.
This is great when you are serving a really spicy main dish. I made Spicy Bison Balls from this site and they, indeed, where very spicy. I whipped this up to go with them and it was a perfect pairing. I cooked the rice in the rice cooker and the noodles took no time at all. Perfect. I made this for the Western Region Faceless Frenzy July 2012
