Seafood Angel Hair Recipe

Seafood Angel Hair Recipe

I sent this recipe to my niece when she was in college, and told her to make it for someone special. We all know the quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach, and since she's now married, I rest my case! Tracy K. Morgan, Summerville, South Carolina
