Angel Hair Pasta with Chicken:
Why I Love This Recipe
TIP: Before cooking pasta, rub the sides of the pot w/ a little oil.
This will prevent the water from boiling over in the pot.
TIP: If you use garlic often, chop several heads of garlic at once.
Place the chopped garlic in 1 T. olive oil in an air tight glass
container. Store in the coldest part of the frig for up to 2 wks.
