Spaghetti Rice

(6 Votes)
Spaghetti Rice
40 Min

Can't decide if the gang would rather have pasta or rice with dinner tonight? Don't worry...with Spaghetti Rice, now they can have both!

What You'll Need

  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup (about 4 ounces) spaghetti, broken into 3-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain or whole-grain rice, uncooked
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, heat 3 tablespoons oil; add mushrooms and onion, and saute until lightly browned. Remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Heat remaining oil in saucepan over medium-low heat; brown spaghetti. (Be careful -- it browns quickly.) Remove saucepan from heat and add mushrooms and onions back into pan. Add remaining ingredients, mixing well.
  3. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 20 more minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed.


  • If you're looking for a good make-ahead side dish, this is the one, 'cause Spaghetti Rice freezes well.
  • Another favorite side dish that goes well with so many main dishes is our Zucchini Rice -- give it a try!

This is good, but not my favorite rice recipe from Mr. Food.

Sounds great with lots of variations you can use for this recipe

This sounds awesome. i like pasta and rice mixed together. And you can add ground beef, ground turkey and some sort of veggie to make a complete meal.

This dish could be made into a one pot meal by adding some fresh &/or frozen broccoli & adding leftover chicken or cooked & drained ground beef or chuck & then following the rest of the recipe.

When do i add the rice in the spaghetti rice recipe? Many Thanks Anabel

You would add the rice at the end of step number 2 when it says to add all remaining ingredients. The rice then cooks for 20 minutes along with the other ingredients. ( It sounds to me like this is a homemade version of Rice-a-Roni.) Hope this helps!

Weeknight Shrimp Fried Rice

Just because we have our weeknight routines, well, that doesn't mean they have to be boring. Sure, there are a lot of delicious shrimp fried rice recipes out there, but the secret that makes ours stand apart is chilling the rice before we cook it. It makes the fried rice lighter, and it won't get mushy later on. .
