Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup broken spaghetti
  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup dried currants
  • 1/4 cup pignoli (pine nuts), toasted
  • 1/2 bunch fresh chives, chopped
  • 1/2 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
Directions
  • Melt the butter over medium heat in a large skillet with a tight-fitting lid. Add the spaghetti and toast until deep golden in color and very nutty-smelling. Add the rice and stir for a minute. Season with some salt and pepper, add 3 1/2 cups of the stock and bring to a low boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook until the rice is just tender, about 18 minutes; add extra stock as necessary if the pan gets too dry. Fluff the pilaf with a fork. Mix in the currants, pignoli, chives and parsley.
