Ok Im terrible with recipes and I am approximating here ......
I use about a 1/2-3/4 a package of 12 oz angel hair pasta crunched up into tiny 1/4"-1/2" pieces.
I brown those until medium brown in 1/2 cup of olive oil on medium. (they will brown quickly, so stir quickly)
I add to that about 3-4 cups of rice and saute about 1 minute, mixing the pasta and the olive oil.
Then I add water (and it will steam when added) the amount I add is to my 2nd knuckle on my index finger. LOL I stick my index finger in and want the water to come above the rice from the end of the finger to the middle knuckle index finger. (that method will work with anyone)
I bring that to a boil.
As its preparing to boil, I add about a tbsp of black or white pepper, about 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper (can add more) about a tbsp of salt (maybe a little more) and a tbsp of garlic powder and I stir all that in.
Once it comes to a boil, I cover and reduce heat to low (with gas) med (with electric) and cook it for exactly 20 minutes, stir and serve.
