I serve this time-saving treatment for angel hair pasta gets loads of flavor from lemon and Parmesan cheese. A hint of garlic and flecks of fresh parsley add interest, too. This simple side dish is so versatile, it also could accompany chicken, fish, seafood or pork.—Meg Mongell, Plainfield, Indiana

"This is excellent, quick and simple. I served it with the Turkey Florentine on the same page, but it could be a side dish for many different entrees."
