This actually started off being a side dish that slowly morphed into a main dish as well with the addition of chicken and a veggie of your choice. Broccoli or peas can be added to make a one pot meal. This dish is simply rice and noodles cooked in a chicken broth and salt and pepper added. The secret is to brown the dry egg noodles with butter before adding the liquid.
