  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups long grain rice
  • 1 bunch of angel hair pasta about the diameter of a dime, broken into ½-1" pieces
  • 4 ounces canned sliced mushrooms drained and roughly chopped or broken
  • 32 ounces Swanson Unsalted Chicken Broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt or more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • parsley for garnish optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat and stir in rice and pasta. Cook, stirring constantly, until the rice and pasta start to turn golden brown- about 5-7 minutes.
  • Transfer rice into a 9x13" pan and combine with mushrooms, broth, onion flakes, salt and pepper. Taste the broth to make sure it is seasoned to your liking, adding more salt if needed.
  • Cover pan tightly with foil and bake for 60 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, take off foil and fluff the rice with a fork, incorporating all the mushrooms back into the rice that rose to the top.
