  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, minced
  • 2 cups long-grain white rice
  • 1/4 pound capellini (angel hair) pasta, broken into 1-inch pieces (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 3 cups chicken broth or water
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill


  1. Step 1

    Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion until softened, about 4 minutes. Add rice and capellini. Cook, stirring frequently, until slightly golden, about 4 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Add salt and broth; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork, and stir in dill.
