1/4 cup carrot, diced
1/4 cup celery, diced
1/4 cup onion, diced
2 ounces spaghetti, broken into 1/2" or smaller pieces
1 1/4 cups white rice, not minute rice
1 tablespoon butter
2 1/2 cups chicken broth, made from bouillon, or 2 (15-oz) cans


In a preheated 10” Dutch oven, melt the butter over medium heat and sauté spaghetti until light brown in color. Add vegetables and sauté 2 minutes longer

Stir in rice, then broth. Cover. Remove 2 or 3 bottom coals and cook, covered 40 to 60 minutes. Do not lift the lid to take a peak, the moisture is necessary for the rice to cook completely. Try this recipe with beef stock also.
