Buttered Angel hair pasta with Parmesan cheese

Lynnda Cloutier


When boiling water for the pasta, start with hot tap water and cover the pot with a lid. This is a surefire way to speed up your cook time. Another timesaver is to use Angel hair pasta since it cooks much faster than thicker pasta like fettuccine or tagliatelle. This is a weight watchers recipe, so you won't feel guilty when you eat it!
