Pepperoni Angel Hair Recipe

Pepperoni Angel Hair Recipe

This noodle side dish is so versatile that it can accompany steak, pork chops, chicken or even hamburgers. Chill leftovers to serve as a cool main-dish salad on a warm summer night. When time allows, I like to replace the pepperoni with sliced cooked chicken. -Julie Mosher, Coldwater, Michigan
