    I have eaten such a dish in Italy, and I have to admit that the Parmesan makes it all better.

    Sounds like a perfect dinner. I love tomato sauce with garlic. And basil gives an appealing flavor to this pasta. A glass of red wine would perfectly accompany this delicious pasta.

  3. I haven't eaten angel hair since I was a little kid. Great, simple recipe. I would even add some black olives into the mix. Thanks!

    It made me really curious and eager to taste this dish since I don't believe that I've tasted it before. Now, since I already love most recipes that include garlic and olive oil (I actually like to add garlic to anything that I eat, especially pizza) I think that this one is going to be perfect for me – I mean, the tomatoes along with Parmesan cheese, how can you say no to this one?!

    Thanks for sharing this recipe :)

  7. This food looks amazing. I'm not a fan of cooking, but I love food so much I'm considering trying it out! I hope mine turns out as good as this sounds and looks!
