Herbed Angel Hair Pasta
Looking for something a little more exciting than boiled pasta to serve with a chicken entree, Greta Igl found inspiration and just-picked flavor in her herb garden. “I love using fresh herbs whenever possible, she says, “and I have plants tucked all around my yard in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.”
