Favorite Recipes: Honey-Garlic Angel Hair Pasta

Serves:  10-12
I found this recipe in Quick Cooking Magazine (by Taste of Home) years ago and it's been a family favorite ever since!  Sooo yummy!!!  One of our current favorite summer dinners is to serve this pasta dish along with a separate dish of spinach salad tossed with Italian salad dressing, bacon bits, and chopped red bell pepper.  Our whole family gobbles it up (even when we had 2-year-olds)!  And I was just thrilled to recently learn on our Whole Foods adventure that spinach is full of protein - so this is a complete meal!  *cheer!*  So light and yummy! 

Ingredients:
  • 1 pkg. (16 oz.) Angel Hair pasta (I use whole wheat)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced (I use jarred)
  • 1/2 c. butter (or margarine)
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions:
  • Cook pasta according to package directions, in a large enough pot that you'll be able to toss the pasta with the honey-garlic mixture.
  • Meanwhile, in a skillet, sautee the garlic in butter.
  • Stir in the honey, basil, and thyme.
  • Drain pasta and put back in to the cooking pot, add the garlic mixture and toss to coat.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Blessings on your family's meals!
