This recipe is my grandmother's. She came from Armenia and it has been in our family for years. We all still make it and it is so easy.

I used olive oil instead of butter and added half an onion chopped and an Anaheim pepper chopped. I substituted orzo for the crushed vermicelli. Sauteed it all for about ten minutes then added the room temp broth and brought the whole thing to a boil. This will definitely be a regular menu item at my house. Read More

Very yummy and easy! I didn’t have vermicelli, so I used broken up Angel hair/thin spaghetti noodles. Also, I added garlic, onions, and chopped red pepper to mine. Read More
