Fat per serving = 4.1 grams Calories per serving = 291 Delicate angel hair pasta demands a light and elegant sauce, such as this simple white wine mixture flecked with bits of fresh tomato and basil. It's a terrific first course of luncheon dish. I find the spinach and semolina varieties to be somewhat sturdier than plain wheat-flour angel hair pasta, but you still need to handle them carefully. Cook for only 30 seconds to 1 minute, toss, and serve immediately. I prefer dried pasta to fresh for several reasons, not the least of which is that it lacks the fat and cholesterol of the fresh variety, which is made with eggs. Better-quality dried pastas can be purchased in a seemingly endless range of flavors--usually at a fraction of the price of fresh. They hold up to the most robust of sauces and are simpler to cook. If you use fresh pasta, be sure to separate the strands before adding them to the pot so tht they don't stick together while cooking. Time carefully. Fresh pasta is done in 3 to 5 minutes and can be overcooked easily.
