Rice Pilaf

My neighbor has brought a version of this rice dish to the last 2 parties we've had here at our condo development, and I just love it. I finally asked for the recipe and I entered it into WW and it comes out to 3 pts! It's really tasty and you can add different herbs and spices to your liking. Here is a base recipe, add to it as you wish and make it your own!

Rice Pilaf
Serves 6

2 cup fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup uncooked brown rice
2 oz. high-fiber pasta, broken into small pieces
3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed
3/4 cup frozen green peas, thawed

Place the chicken broth in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add the rice and pasta to the pot; reduce heat and cook until all liquid is evaporated, about 30-40 minutes. Add the corn and peas during the last 10 minutes of cooking. Season to taste.
