“This is a quick and easy family favorite that is asked for at home and at potlucks and parties. What makes this recipe so good is the endless ways that you can season it. It's also easily converted for a very large amount. I have made it for as little as my husband and I all the way to a group of 80 for my son's engagement party. Use Greek, Old Bay®, seasoned salt, garlic powder - endless possibilities.”

Not too bland, not too bold, just right - and for my turkey dinner tonight that means it was perfect. Hubs and I both appreciated its simplicity. I used orzo for the broken vermicelli and chicken broth rather than the bouillon and water. Even tho’ the submitter encourages using your choice of seasoning, I stuck to the Greek seasoning as the recipe was written. As she said, however, the recipe is versatile so it allows the flexibility to use any number of different herbs or seasonings. We loved it, plain and simple.

What an absolutely delicious side dish for either chicken or pork. The store didn't have either vermicelli or greek seasoning. I used the greek seasoning recipe from the AR site (it was great) and whole grain thin spaghetti for the vermicelli. From a presentation perspective, I think I'll break the pasta into smaller pieces the next time. Since I used 2 tsp bouillon granules, I did not add the salt, and we didn't miss it. We like pepper, and this was just the perfect qty for us, but if you're not a pepper lover, you may want to approach that measurement cautiously. I think this would make an excellent filling for a hollowed out whole ripe summer tomato or even adding some shredded chicken to it for a summer lunch. Moist, flavorful, and just downright tasty. Thanks, Ann, this is a winner in my book.

A great base recipe. I like to add my own twist and this recipe certainly allowed for that. Will be using this recipe again.
