Herbed Angel Hair Pasta Recipe

"My family loves this, and it's so much easier than the creamy noodles recipe I had been using. My youngest never liked the creamy noodles (she doesn't like mac and cheese type dishes) but she likes the herbed angel hair pasta!"

"Simple and good side dish. Served it alongside grilled chicken for the kids and grilled Italian eggplant slices for the adults. Yum!"

"I didn't have the basil or parsley on hand, so I used about 1 tsp or so of pesto. I probably liked it better than if I had followed the recipe!"
