Angel Hair Pasta vs Spaghetti
The light and delicate bite of Olivieri® Angel Hair pasta is still a long variety, however it is much finer in contrast to others like spaghetti or ribbon-like pasta such as linguine.
Angel hair pairs perfectly with all kinds of dishes and lighter or simpler sauces such as Olivieri® Basil & Cheese Pesto.
