Know Your Cervasi Noodle: Capellini

Know Your Noodle: Capellini [Angel Hair]

Angel Hair pasta is well-known as a go-to noodle and a perfect pantry staple. Though it’s often confused with the Spaghetti noodle, it’s thinner shape works best with light cream and oil-based sauces. Another point of confusion could be that Angel Hair pasta is the Americanized name for the thin Capelli d’angelo noodle.
