Don’t let the size of this pasta fool you. While it may be very thin and delicate it makes a very effective addition to your pasta dishes.
Angel hair pasta is a very versatile type of pasta that is great for many dishes and provides a wonderful base for many great meals. This great pasta is an excellent choice when cooking seafood pasta dishes.
The flavors and textures simply seem to compliment one another very well while not taking anything away from the other. You will find that the flavor of one doesn’t over power the other, which isn’t always the case with some pasta dishes.
Angel hair pasta is another fun pasts to experiment with as well. While it does make for an excellent compliment to most seafood dishes, this pasta can be tossed in a little olive oil, a few carefully selected seasonings and spices and make an excellent companion for chicken, beef, veal, or any number of other meat dishes.
You can add a little cream, butter, and parmesan cheese for a sinfully rich sauce that will compliment your angel hair pasta splendidly-just remember the calories tend to add up in these particular dishes so be careful (I know it’s difficult but try) not to make them part of your daily pasta routine.
Even if you aren’t the most creative cook or are not secure enough to do a little carefully crafted experimentation you should be able to find many great angel hair pasta recipes online at no cost. These recipes are great to try because with each new recipe you have the opportunity to learn about flavor combinations that you do like and those that you do not like.
This makes cooking and experimenting later in life much easier as you combine textures, flavors, tastes, and aromas to other dishes based on the knowledge you gain from these experimentations.
Be careful not to let previous disasters turn you off from the wonderful benefits that angel hair pasta has to offer. Some try pairing it with hearty, meaty marinara sauces. While this is perfectly fine if that is the flavor your prefer.
This type of pasta typically doesn’t hold up as well to the heavier sauces and you should consider that when planning your recipes. It works much better with light sauces and not carrying too heavy of a weight when it comes to meats or cheeses.
With so many options for this great pasta I certainly hope you are depriving yourself and your family of all the great flavors you can find with a little kitchen creativity. If you love pasta, there is no reason why you shouldn’t add the always delightful angel hair pasta to the supply of pasta you keep on hand.
