Angel Hair (Pasta)
Angel hair is a type of Italian pasta characterized by rod-shaped (just like spaghetti) and long thin strands. Because they are so thin, they cook very fast – usually in just two minutes, making it a handy ingredient to keep in the pantry. They have been likened to the Asian’s rice vermicelli.
They are often used in Italian pasta dishes.
Italian Name: Capelli d’angelo (which literally means angel hair)
Store opened packet of pasta (sealed, in an air-tight tall container) in a cool, dry cupboard.
How to Cook
Bring a pot of water with a bit of salt added to it to a boil. Add noodles to the pot and cook according to the package instructions (usually 2 minutes), till the noodles are al dente (pasta cooked just right, with a bit of bite).
