“Capelli d’angelo” is Italian for “angel hair,” thinnest of all pasta strands. Because it is so thin, it cooks in as few as 2 minutes! Angel Hair is great for light entrees, side dishes or soups. This delicate pasta works best with very thin tomato-based or broth-based sauces or simple olive oil tosses. Use finely chopped vegetables, seafood or chicken in angel hair tosses to match the delicacy of this shape.
