Favorite pasta? Angel hair!

Angel hair or capelli d’angelo.

If you are into Italian cooking, you must have come across this dreadful type of pasta.

Angel hair pasta or spaghettini. It is virtually impossible to cook it ‘al dente’, with a bite to it. It seems to have only two consistencies: raw or mush. This is a kind of pasta that has no reason for existing, if not for one use, which makes it the best pasta type imaginable.

Broken and added to a broth – or soup – it achieves a touch of divinity. Legitimizing the ‘angel’ in the name. Irregular little segments dreams are made off. Eaten with a spoon, of course.

The fun starts before the eating, with breaking the pasta up. Spread a tea towel and roughly break the angel hear, not worrying about length or regularity. After a while the dislike for that pasta starts fading. Then unite the four corners of the tea towel and start pushing the package with the lower part of your hand. Treat yourself to a massage. Carefully opening the towel feels like breaking into a pirate chest.
