"Great side dish, the family loved it! I did use a vegetable spaghetti instead of angel hair as that was all I had on hand and it turned out great."

"Loved this recipe! Made it as a side dish for supper tonight and will definitely be making this again. I didn't have any chives on hand, so I just added 1/4 teaspoon of dried parsley. I also didn't have any garlic salt, but I added 1/4 teaspoon of granulated garlic and about 1/8 teaspoon salt. Delicious - and very flavorful!"

"I'm always looking for inexpensive recipes to make into complete meals. With this, I cooked some chicken and sauteed some carrots, celery, red and yellow peppers to add to the pasta. My husband said it was great and he doesn't usually comment on what I cook. Next time, I think I will use about half the butter, but I will make it again."

"This reminds me of when I was a little girl. My mom always gave me a bowl of angel hair pasta tossed with butter, garlic and parmesan cheese as a snack while waited for her famous spaghetti to be done. I loved it then- this brings back great memories!"
