CNYEats A Taste of Utica Angel Hair Pasta with Stewed Tomatoes

by Joanne on August 21, 2011

Angel hair pasta, also known as capellini. It’s thin and delicate, a light sauce should be used so you don’t overwhelm the pasta.


The recipe on page 132 of our book A Taste of Utica guides you through an easy preparation and enjoyment of Angel Hair in a light, fresh sauce. Perfect!


You’ll notice there is no oil, not one drop used in this recipe.

  • 1 cup or more of chopped broccoli

    I haven’t tried eating pasta with tomatoes in it. I think I cannot take it. But I will try to taste it though.
