What is your favorite way to eat Angel Hair Pasta?

I swear, I think I could eat Angel Hair pasta every day!

I think my favorite way of fixing it is with an Alfredo sauce and a broccoli/cheese mix. I use it as a side to a lot of meals.

What's your favorite way to eat Angel Hair pasta?

Usually with a lighter oil and garlic sauce.

As much as I love pasta, I have to say I don't really like angel hair. Most times it's served overcooked, thus mushy. Ick.

I prefer toothsome pasta. Favorites being (in addition to fettuccine) some odder shapes like strozzapretti and riccia. I like pasta that holds a sauce well, and I don't think Angel hair does that.

I mostly use it in Pilaf. I prefer spaghetti or fettucini for most things.

angel hair pasta can be tricky to get right, but it is great fun to eat, and its delicate strands laying across the plate--a special visual delight.:)

I like it in (red) spaghetti type sauces, but not a hearty, chunky spaghetti sauce. I like a more substantial pasta in chunky sauces. And I like a linguini or thicker spaghetti in garlic & oil type sauces, because I think they hold the sauce better. But in a typical spaghetti sauce I like angel hair because the noodle and sauce seem to balance out out on my fork.

yeah, it's fantastic with angel hair, tim. the pasta is delicate so it balances with the delicate crab meat and small scallops.
